Richard was a fun loving, good hearted, kind soul who was everyone's friend. To meet him was to immediately like him and to know him was to love him. You always knew you had his love in return. He loved spending long weekends in Disney with his family and most recently looked forward to building our vacation home in Tennessee.
Richard was full of life and always had your back. He made so many lasting friendships through his love for the game of baseball. GCHS baseball, college baseball or the dozens of SWFL softball teams he loved playing with all his brothers and leaving everything he had on the field for his teammates.
