Our thoughts are with Karen and family at this time. Although the pandemic and Richard’s illness limited the amount of time for us to get to know each other we knew very quickly what a warm, decent and sociable man he was. He will be greatly missed as a friend and neighbour. Erica, Julian & James

Karen, it’s been so lovely meeting you and Richard. Loved Richard’s banter and quick jokes, especially when in Ibiza on holidays. He was such a lovely fellow and loved listening to some of his stories. Karen you can look back on all your memories with Richard over all those years and know that those memories will always put a great big smile on your face. It was a pleasure spending time with Richard. Such a lovely fellow he was. Will miss him. Thinking about you and your family. All our love always - Wendy and Danny xxx

Richard, I will miss you very much, I will remember the fun, great stories and all round splendid friend and colleague that you were. Another star has been added to the heavens.


I didn't know Richard as well as some, but any time we met he greeted me warmly and was always a lot of fun. The last time I saw him he had a drink in hand and was laughing heartily, that is how I will remember him. Sincere condolences to family and close friends, I am so sorry for your loss x

I was very fortunate to be a colleague of Richard's for a few years, he had a way of making tedious calls and meetings much more bearable. He was a wonderful story teller with a great sense of fun. I will remember him fondly. Thinking of his family and friends at this very sad time. kind regards Phillippa
