Killed by gun December 13, 1998, at age 16

My son did work for the summer in the library of Los Angeles and in the parks for the City of LA. His hobbies were music, horseback riding and bowling. He also put together two songs of him rapping.

Richard had an effect on everyone’s life that he knew. Richard was always smiling and made everyone else around him smile, too. Richard was a wonderful person to be around and have fun with.

Now that my son in gone, it has taken away a big part from those who loved him. But Richard’s charm will never be forgotten.
