Condolences

Condolence From: Diane Epps
Condolence: So sorry to hear of Richards passing. I met him many years ago when the Boy Scouts invited the Girl Scouts to help distribute and collect flags in cemetaries honoring our veterans. He was a very dedicated father, man, and citizen and our community will greatly miss him. I hope all of the wonderful memories will bring some comfort to his family.

Condolence: To Margaret and Family
So saddened and very sorry for your loss. Rich was an excellent scouting instructor and he will be deeply missed by Troop 469. He instilled many life's lessons to young boys during his scouting career. Our son was one of the many he left impressions on.
May God bless all of you with strength and healing during this difficult time.

Condolence: I have known Richard through Scouting for many years. I will always remember him as a kind, easy going guy with a great smile. When I think of him he will be walking down a wooded trail looking forward with that big smile.
Condolences to the Family. I will miss him.

Condolence From: Michael Searing
Condolence: Rich was a strong believer of the Boy Scout Motto, Oath and everything it had to offer to young boys. I will always remember his passion for scouting and the development of young men through the program that he instilled in all of us. Rich was a force to be recon with when it came to this excitement of the Boy Scout Program and was instrumental in my life in becoming an Eagle Scout. And he still had that passion when we spoke last week. God Bless to you and the legacy you will leave behind here on earth and to the entire scouting community.

Condolence: Margaret and Family,
So sorry to hear about Richard. Memories of the walking and looking for Veterans with Richard and his golf cart. Going to miss his calls about flag holders for the Vets that don't have them. God Bless you, Bonnie
