I am so sorry for your loss. Richard came in to Rydman & Fox many times. He always had a smile on his face. Very friendly guy.

Dixie, Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything I can do to help. You were always such pleasant neighbors at the lake! My dad was so sad to hear the news as well.

Mom & I are so sorry to hear about Richard. We were reminiscing about him yesterday. Mom is still living in Anderson & is doing great at almost 95! I’m sure she would love to hear from you.
Take care!

Dick is going to be missed. The casino visit will never be the same without Dick’s laugh and joking personality. John has many memories of their time at Remy’s and the elementary days at Leach to high school at AHS are memories of mine.
Dixie you are in our thoughts and prayers as well as the rest of the family.
John and Linda Gibson
