    I was SOOOO very sorry to hear that Richard had passed. I worked for him in the 70’s for about 7 years at North American and again for a couple of years in the 80s while he was still married to Shirlene.
    He was such a NICE NICE man and boss! He always took care of me and made sure I was getting what I deserved at North American! 🤗Graduated from high school with his son, Gary. We always say next to each other as he was “Cutter” and I was “Daniel”. 🤗
    I used to see him in the Post Office quite often and we were always glad to see each other!!
    Prayers for Sharon and Debbie and Rex, who I grew up with in Ketch Acres here in Edmond, and the rest of the family!!

    Richard and Sharon were founding members and charter presidents of Teacup Chains Square Dance Club in Edmond. I had the opportunity to dance with them in the past fews years and I always enjoyed visiting with them. Richard asked us to perform at Bradford Village in 2021 and we had a great time. Even got them up with us to dance! Richard had a fantastic smile and he will be missed.
