Richard always loved a good football game, but what he loved more then that was to watch his kids play football through the years. Even coaching a few of our little league teams. He was a man with a massive heart and even a bigger personality. There was never a dull moment when he was around he always had a smile on his face. He will forever be remembered for his big grin and big hugs. We love you forever and always Dad, Brother, Uncle and friend.
