Deepest Sympathies to the family. I worked with Richard at SIA and Richard was always getting people to smile and laugh. He always greeted people with a smile, high five or fist bump. His jokes and his cheerful demeanor I will remember as a little bit of sunshine to brighten up any mundane job I ever worked beside him with. Will miss you Richard and everyone that worked with you will miss you and you will never be forgotten.

My deepest sympathies to the family. I will always remember Richie. Although a large part of my life I spent with him as a small child, toddler, teenager.. He even came over later on as an adult. I even met a couple of his children. And yes, he did play the guitar for us a few times. He enjoyed entertaining us and making us laugh. RIP sweet boy.

My nephew Richie has always been a happy go lucky person. He was always telling jokes and making people laugh. He had a genuine love of life. He loved his children so much and they all seem to have a bit of his
out going personality. He will be greatly missed by so many. Our family will never be the same. I hope his love for life lives in his children's hearts forever and that they will never forget the love he had for each of them. I was so proud of him for getting a great job, marrying a great girl, and being a great dad. He had overcome so many obstacles. It is so sad that his life was cut so short.

Richard was a close friend of mine. My heart is breaking. I know that he loved Liz and his children. He talked about his Mom and Dad all of the time. He always talked about the silly things that he would say and do to his mom. He said that he was just like his dad.
He always made everyone around him laugh. Im going to miss his smile and laugh! There is nothing that we couldnt talk about. He was a great friend to me. My son Jackson is heartbroken too. Jackson adored Richard.
I hope that his heart is at peace now❤
Thinking of your family!
