For Rich and His Love of Nature

Aside from family, nothing mattered to Rich more than nature. After years of wanting to move to Portland from Fort Wayne, Indiana; Rich and his wife, Sara, finally made it to their favorite city with their two daughters and their first grandchild.

Rich lost a battle with cancer on 03/19 and his experience and love for this city was cut way too short. Knowing him the way I did, he wouldn't want much of a fuss, but I want to honor him as the great person, husband, and father he was. I want to make sure that my son remembers him. He was one of the funniest people I have ever known and he would do anything for anyone.

Portland offers an amazing memorial idea of adopting a city bench in a loved one's name. I want to do this for him and his family and I would just need some help in order to do it.

Adopt a bench

Thank you for anything.
