Richard would always command the life of any room he walked in . He was always so funny and the sweetest man . May he rest now , no more pain or sorrow will he feel. My condolences to his son and the rest of the Taylor family.

Richard was one of the nicest men you would ever meet. Oh that smile!!!! At work, he always had a smile and a good word to say to everyone. I was always anxious to see what bow tie he would wear next. He truly did not know how many lives he touched with his Christian witness. I know God is proud of him and what all he went though without a complaint. We all should be more like Richard!
