Throughout his life, Richard took the time to make hundreds of friends among his community, his St. Mark’s family, and his parish of Sacred Heart. He was filled with extreme enthusiasm and optimism no matter the circumstance, he always had a story to share or advice to give, and he was always eager to lend a helpful hand to everyone he crossed paths with.
