It transports me back to the many times when we got to work with Richard at community dances. I admire fully how he could get a chaotic group of youngsters dancing and having a great time even in a room with poor sound quality. He also always took care of the musicians, from taking care of the sound system to making sure they were fed.

Does anyone else have any good MC or wedding stories about him?

What a neat example he was to others. We will miss him and remember the good times. We will never forget the twinkle in his eyes at every dance.

We are grateful to have had the chance to play some tunes for him on the porch while rain dripped through the leaves a few weeks before he passed away. Even in his weakened state, his slippered feet padded out the beats to waltzes and hambos and he seemed dreamily transported back to the dance floor. I was hoping it wouldn’t be our last chance…. but his wonderful and musical family will carry on.

Although I never met Richard, I feel as though I know him a little through your testimony, and am saddened that I never danced with him…on this earth:-).
