    Very sorry to hear of Richard's struggle and passing. I enjoyed the few years of working with Richard out of General Shale Brick Moncure NC yard. He was always very professional and thorough. We had many conversations about trucking and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. I am sure he will be missed by many

Nobody will ever take my favorite cuz place or the love I had for him.
