I met Richard when I first moved to the area...after the Garden was gone. My life is richer having him in my world. Oh, the stories he could tell. Rest in Peace my friend!

When I opened The Landing Restaurant in Sagle, Idaho I met Richard as the person to repair refrigeration as the owner of the building lied to me and told me everything worked, all the refrigeration units, the walk in refrigerator and freezer, which absolutely not true and Richard came and fixed everything within one week. He gave me a lot of advice and information about running my restaurant based on his previous experience owning the Garden Restaurant in Sandpoint. Whenever I had a problem he was always on time to fix what was broken. Richard was a real gentlemen who I considered a friend.........Len Golding.

Richard was a great neighbor, friend, gardener and the finest of restaurateurs. I have many wonderful memories but I am sad. This is a loss.

I last talked to Richard a few weeks ago. He was still, as those close knew, the minister of "disturbance". We loved the dry wit, the secret humor, the knowing smile. AND the fun after closing when the tourists left at "closing time" The few that did not love him completely respected him. He was the brains, talent and creative force behind the iconic Garden restaurant. It hurts when you lose someone who mentored and guided you. Tears....

I have known Richard for several years and served with him on the Board of Directors for the Bottle Bay Sewer District. He was a very active and contributing member of the Board and his sage counsel, wisdom and wry sense of humor will be missed by all his fellow board members. May he rest in peace.
