What a shocker for me. In my mind, Richard will always be 18 years old.

Stay well old friends. Our numbers are diminishing.

Rest in peace old friend.  Hopefully we meet on the other side and we will be able to laugh at all the good times we had together, especially those car pool days to old Weber.  Many a day you saved my bucket and took my turn when my old Mercury was not running. You were one of the best.  The "Roy Boys" are getting fewer and fewer.

I remember the good times we had, you, Larry Austin, Dennis Heiner, Don Elmer and Walter Abbott.  I remember church basketball with coach Puffer, the times we spent at the Roy Theater and Bennion Drug, our time together at Roy Jr. High and then a Weber.  Thanks for your friendship.  Will see you soon!

I was treated well by Richard. Gosh, I counted over 100 of your classmates who have left this sinful world. We will meet again when Jesus calls us all home with Him in Glory.  Praise God for the gospel!  Hw

We are all so saddened at the passing of our fellow classmates from Good Ole" Weber.  Life is fleeting, but the memories are forever.  I was especially shocked this past week when learning of the unexpected demise of our good friend, Richard.  He was a terrific example of friendship and optimism about life itself.  May he be blessed with the richest of blessings as he leaves the rest of us for now.  Out of sight, but not out of mind.  Many of our classmates from the "Class of 61"  have moved on now.  We will all take that good journey someday!  But the great memories remain and will be further savored in future places and times.  I can still visualize Richard sitting at the score table at the WSU basketball games, which  he loved doing for so many years. Til' we meet again, rest in peace our friend..
