They say “Only the good die young” and it couldn’t be more true than Richard (Big Red Jones).
Richard was a friend to many and would welcome anyone into his home. He was the friend who would be there in an instant when called upon. We all congregated at his home on many occasions to just hang out and appreciate each other. He had many bonfires, where friends would come and party till the wee hrs in the morning. Going to miss his laughter, sense of humor and his unwavering friendship. God bless you Richard and your mom. May you Rest In Peace. Love you brother.
