What a beautiful tribute to Richard!  My family and I spent  a year together in Bangkok, Thailand.  He was the branch president, but more than that, Richard & Cenia were my family when they lived 3 stories up in our shared apartment building.  They took such good care of me and my 4 little kids when my husband, Orson, was sent to serve up-country at a Thai AFB for a year. We shared many meals in their home and rides to the emergency room when one of my kids needed medical attention.  He was even called "Mr. Porter" and invited in to watch one of them received stitches.  I will be forever grateful for their friendship and love.

I worked with Dick at the Alumni Association.  He was a diligent worker.  We all loved his sense of humor.  Out meetings and parties were better because of his contributions.  He looks bed the students and they loved him.  Such find memories of our alumni family.  What a great man!❤️. Connie Cluff

Oh I will miss his smile and his lovely postings on his Facebook page. He and Cenia are part of our fond memories of the Park 4th ward. My prayers are with his family at this time. May you feel comfort and peace and the living presence of both of them.

We will miss our dear friends from our days together in Bangkok.  It was a joy to be with the family when our children were growing up together and Richard was our Branch President.  His obituary describes him well.  We are so grateful for his continuing friendship long after we served together.  We will miss the Jaquie Lawson e-cards and the opportunity to meet at Bangkok reunions.  Our condolences to members of his beautiful family.
