It is sad news that Richard passed away yesterday after a long battle with leukemia. Arrangements are pending.
Richard was a great player from maryland and always a gentleman. He played in many pro and semi-pro tournaments almost always placing highly. He will be sorely missed. Bob

Very sad news! He always did well in the regional tournaments and was so relaxed while he was playing! Hopefully JAM and others can post some pictures…I tried but couldn't find any online.

Bob, Richard's wife called me this evening with the unfortunate news...very sad indeed. I've know Richard for many years always a complete gentleman and the consummate pool player...he will be sorely missed.

According to his wife he did not carry any insurance and so a "Go Fund Me" account will be established to assist in deferring medical costs. I will be providing details on that as well as funeral arrangements (details) that will occur on 9 Oct 2015.

Thanks to all who read this thread.

Sad news, indeed.

He was a fine member of our pool scene.

RIP, Sir.
