Richard passed away suddenly Wednesday June 21, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas. Richard was a long time member of the Cisco family. We were colleagues, but we were also friends – real friends. Richard was a dedicated family man and we knew his family meant more to him than anything in the world. He was so proud of his kids, Nathan, Olivia and Bryce. He absolutely adored his wife Valerie. We knew so much about them because he proudly talked about them and a few were lucky enough to meet them.
Richard was a caring person in everything he did. He was there to lend a hand, make things work or help things get done. You could always count on him. He lived a ‘rich’ life (yes, pun intended). He told the best stories about his adventures. Sometimes when he was telling one of those stories, we literally laughed until we cried. We always 'got things done' and always, always had fun.
A light has gone out too soon on earth but a new star now shines from the heavens.
