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.
