Richard was the electrician at the EHS Evergreen Hig School when I was in the Covington Jr. High school. Richard was a good Christian example to me then and always.

I have gotten to know several of his children and grandchildren, but did not know Richard (Sr) himself.

It is difficult losing loved ones and hard to know exactly what to say. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

May God comfort, guide and keep you.
