I will miss seeing Richard in his crisp white shirts. He always had a smile and a hug when I would see him. So sorry for your loss.

My condolences and sympathies to the families and relatives of Richard Dokken. We shared the same farm area in the 50s-70s and I knew his parents well. Rest in peace eternal, Richard!
