Richard's passion in life was valued by his family and friends. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, trapping and his gardening. He enjoyed life to its fullest.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff of High Peaks Hospice and to Pastor Charlie Boistridge for the walks in the garden, watching the ball games and simply having a maple donut with him.

A special thanks goes out to friend Rick Smith for all the support and help, and to Kellie Winchell for all your caregiving for him to the end.

Donations can be made in Richard's name to the American Cancer Society or to Pastor Charlie Bolstidge, P.O. Box 192, Port Henry, NY 12974.
