    He was as constantly good a pigeon shot as I ever saw and a nice guy.

    A really fun guy to be around. Several years ago, Richard made and sold black wind breakers with a big white pigeon on the back. I still were mine every once in a while. Age can be good but we sure lose good people and old friends too often. Jimmy Borum

    Joe - any details? I talked with Richard about two months ago and he seemed ok - but did look like he had lost weight.

    Regards,

    Bill

    Richard had cancerous bladder removed last Thursday (?) came home over the weekend and died yesterday after complications wit breathing.. maybe a blood clot,

    He first kicked my ass shooting pigeons in 1968. Like all of you I will miss him.

    He was very good and fair to everyone. One of my first friends I made when starting flyers. A real gentlemen. Stan

    Just got back from the funeral - saw a lot of shooting friends I haven't seen in awhile. Willy Price, Joe Woesthaus, Dan Browder, Jud Little, Huckabee brothers, Connell, Kipp, Pickett, Stringer.....

    Gonna miss him. Apparently a blood clot breaking loose after the operation is highest probability.

    RIP

    A good friend to all shooters,Richard was a great host of many of the best pigeon shoots for decades. Hand thrown or box birds he was one of the very best shots in the world! As Troy once said on his last bird one day at horse shoe mtn ranch, this ones for you Richard! pow pow lost said the trapper!
