Our deepest sympathy for your loss . His easy going attitude , big smile and quick laugh will be missed . I still laugh when I remember Richard and my father (Bob) standing side by side comparing beer bellies to see which one of them had hit the 9 month due date . Love Richard , Nancy , Dane , Melissa & Ryan Blimkie
