He was indeed a terrific mod and great contributor here for a very long time. I'm stunned.

My friend Richard was always in good spirits, every time I talked or corresponded with him, and he was a strong influence on me in my early days as a staff member. There's a lot about DBSTALK that bears his personal stamp, and I am pleased and honored to have known him.

Richard King was truly one of the good guys, a true friend to me, and I'm sure, of many others. He will be missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
May you rest in peace, rking401, may you rest in peace.

It is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of one of our moderators Richard King. Richard started his mod duties here on DBSTalk back in September of 2003. He was both a good friend and a mentor. I will miss him terribly but take comfort in the fact that he is now in a better place. Goodbye Richard and God speed.
I'm very sorry for this loss.

I hoped we'd get to see each other at CES again someday. At least I know I will see him in the CES in Heaven.
Peace, Richard. You done many good things, now you get to do them in Heaven.

Today is a sad day, indeed. Richard will be sorely missed. Though I imagine right about now he's sitting behind a sound board making heavenly music with someone.
