I worked with Dick both at Preston and roadway, he was a great guy, always friendly and easygoing, you will truly be missed. I remember the good time we had at the brewers game. Of all the people I have worked with over the years, you truly were one of the best! My prayers go out to to the family, it’s a sad time but I know he is looking down from heaven to watch over us all, good bye old buddy your friend Bill Constable.

Pops was such a good friend to our family. We shared so many great memories both at home and on our many fishing trips to Canada. Pops was always in charge of making what seemed to be a 20 gallon container of tuna salad. It got a cooler all to itself and it was delicious! One trip was just Paul and Pops, they got to Canada a day early. They were so anxious to start fishing that they slept in the blue blazer,listening to the mosquitoes swarm outside while eating the tuna salad. Each one had an end of the container. Sooo many memories we are greatful to have shared! We loved him and miss him dearly. Our deepest sympathies to the entire family.

My favorite memory of Richard is the moment he saw Ed at Allison’s wedding. His memory was already significantly impacted by Alzheimer’s however, the moment he saw Ed, his face lit up and there was a huge smile as he said “Eddie!”. There was still a connection between them which was priceless to see.

Wendy, Kerry, Mandy, Ricky, Tom, Ken, Linda and all family members:
Brenda and I are so sorry to hear about Richard’s passing. Richard was my favorite cousin as we grew up as teenagers playing football in the streets and basketball practice at Muskego HS where I went to school. Richard would come to our house at Christmas break and my coach allowed Richard to practice with us. During October, November and December Richard would come to our house in Windlake for weekends and we would hunt squirrels and rabbits. My Dad would cook up a large platter of squirrel and rabbit and we had a feast. So you can tell we did a lot of things together and had a lot of fun. I won’t be able to come for his funeral as I had a stroke 12 days ago. I ‘m doing fine with very little damage however I don’t have approval to yet. We wish we could be there with you and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

This are some memories that my girls (Hannah & Julia) have while taking care of him when he first moved to Forest Ridge Senior Living Apts. We remember how he “loved” eating “Cheetos” and drinking Diet A&W Rootbeer. The other cute memory was when he was watching his old show called “The Riflemen” and the show was beginning he’d yell out “Thhhhhe Riflemen!!!'” Or when Family Feud would come on he’d say “Steeeeve Harvey!!!” Or when we would walk in to his Apt he’d say “Howdy”.if you’d tell him what you are doing or if it was a busy hectic day he’d say “it’s always somethin”!! We will miss you Grampa Pops, but you will always be in our hearts!!
