Richard was a super guy. I just ushered with him a couple weeks ago. When things were not perfect at Outback, he would come out and make them perfect. From all our ushers and parishioners @ St. Columba, we will all dearly miss our friend Richard.

Richard my dear nephew , I was privileged and proud to have spent , all be it, limited time with you during my visits to the US. I will cherish those moments , particularly your infectious laughter during the silly topics that we sometimes engaged on. I equally enjoyed the discussions regarding the food and beverage industry , an environment that we both have a passion for.
My deepest condolences to my dear sister Myrna , Bob and the Lee family. Although we are miles apart , you can rest assured that you will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
Joe , Nini , Gerard , Laura and Jonathan
