My husband and I lived next to Rich for several yrs, my husband loved to tease Rich, Rich would always take it in until he realized he had been duped, fun times with him and Linda, always have a special place for him in my heart, he was a kind gentle man

Richard was one of our customers. He was always so pleasant and had such a kind demeanor. Prayers to Linda and his family.

I will never forget and already miss his sense of humor. He was such a cut up, and would zing you when you least expected it. That and his hugs, and he never met a stranger. He was a special brother-in law, and a treasured son-in-law to Linda's and my late father for many years. You were an original Rich. I loved you, RIP. Our condolences to Linda, Eric and the Bolin family. Cherise and George Lynch
