Larry and Brenda Campbell: We both remember Richard as a Bright Student, Hard Worker, Friend, Athlete, Handsome Young Man at Risco High School in the late 1950's. Larry remembers him as a Basketball Team Mate with Coach Hon as their their leader. We all enjoyed listening to Richard sing on the School Bus as we traveled to Basketball Games. Larry says he has fond memories as he and Richard worked on the farm, each driving tractors together. Larry also says he still remembers hearing Richard singing above the tractor noise.
I have known Rich & Irene for more than 60 years, Irene & I went to St. Stanislaus Grade School. A very close family they are. Everyone loved Rich, he will be greatly loved & missed forever. He was the man that did so many things for people but never said a word about. He helped & changed people's lives. My sincere condolences to Irene & his great family. Rich was very proud of his entire family & loved them so very much.
