Memorial by his friend Schmidtrock

Rich died on his beloved Sporty. He especially loved slaying the Tail of the Dragon, HWY 129 NC/TN Tail of the Dragon Loved riding the Sporty, playing guitars and his favorite whiskey, Jack Daniels. Was the most dependable and loving friend I've had, and we called each other brother and meant it. Sorely, sorely missed. A void in my life, soul and heart.
