obituaries, R


  1. I am sorry to hear about the passing of Richard. As a child, I spent many days at the house of Vivian and Jimmy Hayes [and young Kathy], located in Crary Mills. Richard will be missed by those who knew him. ~K.Hoaken Jenack

  2. Sorry to learn about Richard’s passing. I remember him because his aunt and uncle lived next door to my parents (David Rickett’s parents) and he was a customer at our dealership (Brown’s Dodge) in Canton. My sincere sympathy to his family. RIP Richard.
