I worked with Dick at UPR for several years and admired his dedication and commitment to excellence in his work. He was a manager that was assessible to others who had questions or needed to draw on his knowledge and experience. He will be missed. My thoughts for peace and comfort go out to his family. Steve Smith, April 20, 2010 I will miss Richard very much. He was not only my boss, I also considered him a good friend. My heart goes out to Gretchen and his family. I will miss his many phone calls each day and having what Gretchen and me called "a work husband." Debbie Leeper, April 11, 2010 It's hard to believe that such a wonderful person is no longer with us but God must have had a need for him that no one else could fill. Our prayers go out to Gretchen and family in this time of sorrow. Richard will be missed by eveyone that knew him. Ed & Myrtie Burke, April 9, 2010 I spent several years working with Richard at UPRC. He was always a lot of fun and dedicted to getting the job done. He will be missed by all. I never say goodbyes, just til we meet again. Richard D. Ball, April 9, 2010 Getting to know Richard and Gretchen was a blessing in my life, so I was very saddened to hear of Richard's passing. Gretchen, I am thinking about you and your family during this very difficult time. I am here for you, whatever your needs. Richard was a wonderful man, and will be greatly missed. You are in my prayers. Elizabeth Bryant, April 8, 2010 Richard was my director at Total Transportation. He was a the kind of director whose door was always open may the problems be large or small. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to work for him as long as I would like to have. I will miss him greatly as I know all of us at TTS will. Rest in Peace Boss--We shall meet again!! Richard T Domotor, April 8, 2010 It was an honor and pleasure to know and work with Richard. He will definitely be missed by all whom he had touched. God bless his soul and to Gretchen for being there with him! John R Ryder, April 8, 2010 Dad was a hard working, compassionate man who has left us too soon. I love you, Dad. Sean Paul Bloodgood, April 8, 2010 A lot of memories with this awesome individual whom I had the pleasure of being his secretary at UPRC. If I never had the opportunity to work with him I wouldn't have had the pleasure of meeting Gretchen. Prayers and Peace. Denise Marie Leialoha Honeycutt, April 8, 2010
