Mark, Robin,Tammy,Samantha

Mark, Robin,Tammy,Samantha and all the grandchildren. Although Rich was not a large man he had a heart that was bigger than most. Bob and I were friends with him since our pre-teen years and valued that friendship through all the years. Remember all the good things he did and the fun times you all had. Be proud of the service he gave for our freedom and for many generations to follow. He will be deeply missed by both of us and we will keep all of you in our hearts and prayers.
