  • We are so sorry for your loss. Richard was an awesome person. He could bring a smile to your face during the most boring of classes. He was taken much too soon.

    Dear Dana, Tom and I are heartbroken at Richard’s home going. I’m still in disbelief. There are few men that I’ve met in my life that can hold a torch to the kindness and gentleness of this man. He will be truly miss. God give you peace and healing and please know your whole family is in our prayers

    To Richard’s family:

    Although Richard and I were based in different locations, he was always very friendly and eager to help me with various collaborative projects at work between the PD lab and the plant. Especially since I know how hectic the day-to-day at the plant can be, this was always appreciated and a testament to Richard’s kindness. My thoughts, prayers, and strength are with all of you. You will be missed, Richard, and thank you for your service to our country.

    Take care,
    Bristee Das
