Richard was a kind, caring, giving & compassionate man. He loved his church, Faith Tabernacle! He helped Pastor Davis with giving church members rides to church & to anywhere they needed to go. Never asking for anything in return. He was a wonderful asset to our church! He will be missed dearly. Go rest high upon the mountain your work on earth is done.

Richard was a member of our family, even though he wasn't related. He was a helper to daddy from digging ditches, planting trees, and many other projects that daddy would do.
Just a good faithful friend. Everytime I seen Richard I would say, "Hello Buddy, he would reply back, Hello Buddy." He would do the same to my girls as well. When they were young they thought his name was Buddy. He will be missed by all of us, including Faith Tabernacle Church. Richard is shouting down the streets of gold in Heaven now.

Richard was a member of Faith Tabernacle Church in Marion, he loved the Lord very much. He attended all the services and revivals. If the doors were open, Richard would be there. He was especially close to Pastor Harold Davis and the family. He was always willing to help when asked to. We all will miss him very much, We are so happy he has a new Heavenly home to live in, no more sickness, no more pain.
