It’s just so hard to believe that this strong, hearty and outspoken man is gone, we’re still trying to let it sink in. I’m so thankful that he went in as peaceful and quick a manner as he did, not that I wanted to see him go at all, but I just think that everybody should see that as the silver lining as it could have gone way different. Either way though we’ll miss his presence so much, I really hate that I took so long to get to know him, you will be missed Sir. ❤❤

Dick was my cousin but as close to me as any brother could be. We grew up together on my Aunt Pearl and Uncle Carl's farm. I have so many wonderful memories of the experiences we shared together as kids and on into adult life. He was my best man at my wedding. After he moved to N. Carolina we kept in touch and got together when ever possible. I hold a special place in my heart for him and will miss him so very much. May he rest in peace until we meet again.

Our family feels your loss. We all considered Ritchie a good friend. Bobby enjoyed the time he spent with him when he worked at his shop. He was always kind, and always had something to say to make you smile or cheer you up. Our thoughts & prayers are with all of you. May God Hold You in His Grace.
