  5. Richard was such a great friend of mine for over 65 years and I have lot of great memories with him from playing darts, football and going on holidays, we had such a laugh and were even best men at each others weddings. Even although I moved to Scotland Richard and I never lost touch we still met up when we could and more recently talked a lot on whatsapp face call. I will really miss my best friend, he was the kindest, friendliest and most generous man I have had the pleasure of calling my friend. My sincere condolences to all of Richards family he was one of a kind, hopefully he will now be at peace along with his wife Sonia.

  6. So sad of Richard’s passing. He was a lovely, warm-hearted man who had a great sense of humour. He was also a very kind man.

    I’ve known Richard ever since I was little from being at school with Paula and himself and Sonia always made me feel welcome whenever I came over.

    You will be very much missed.

    Lots of love to all the family.
