Not sure what to say?

Richard was a great family man, Air Force veteran, supervisor, hunter, fisherman, and a long time friend! I was so happy to get to visit him this summer when I was in Colorado. I will always have beautiful memories of Richard! God bless Gerri and all of his family. We live with the hope and promise that we will see him again. Sending love! Mike and Linda Karlson.


Love you opa.

Richard was a gentle man. He was a great, fun brother in law and I enjoyed spending time with him whenever I could. He introduced me to cow patties in Alabama when he would take me and my mom fishing for bream in some farm pond when we visited him and my dear sister Gerri. He and i golfed a little and made a good pair because neither one of us were that good, at least I wasn't.
I will miss him dearly and loved him like a brother. RIP RED
