My dad Richard enjoyed listening to music, walking around and meeting new people or friends, especially the ladies. He enjoyed conversations about his children, he loved to laugh and joke around with everyone. He also enjoyed quoting movies and had an amazing sense of humor. There was never a dull moment with him around. He enjoyed helping people around him, and was always known to be a helpful person to anyone who knew him or crossed paths with him.
My dad was a kind, loving person that would always be willing to give the shirt off his back. He always had positive things to say about everyone he knew. My dad was an easy-going man, and lived his life simply. I’ll never forget you dad, and will hold our memories close to my heart and share your stories.
