Not sure what to say?

I met Richard working at the bank and I was so sad when I had to move away. He kept in touch by calling me almost every Friday to check in. The last time we talked he asked about my daughter and I wished him a happy birthday. I hadn't heard from him in a few months and decided to call and couldn't get through. I am deeply saddened that he has passed but I am grateful for the time we had.

He was like a second grandfather and I love and will miss him

Our family will miss our close friend Richard- "Pard" - After 40 years of friendship, it will be hard to beleive he is gone. We will sure miss him.

I first met Dick in 1979 and have kept in touch with him throughout the years as we lived in many different parts of the country. When we moved back to this area a few years ago I enjoyed getting together with him for lunch at the Elks and swapping stories. A finer man I'd never met. He will be missed by many.

Pard was a great friend of mine for thirty years. He was a great bartender for me when we owned the LPI Lounge. Was always there when we needed him. Pard, you were a great friend. I will certainly miss you.

Pard was a very special and good friend of Betty and mine. We had many,many good times together. Pard was one of my favorite "boating buddies". I will miss him greatly.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Dick was always one of the very nicest people at Raytheon. I enjoyed working with him. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

Pard, you were and will always remain "special" to Jaime, Marla, JoAnn and I. Thanks for great friendship and wonderful memories!

You will always live in our hearts and prayers.
