I didn't know Richard, but I got to know something about him as a person in his posts in a couple of threads on the economy. I already missed his presence, but feel sad that I'll never get to read another one his posts.

In 2010, the economy was not doing right by him. But he didn't lay blame except to say:

Nah, it's sunspots. ;)

By my standards he was way, way too young to be taken from this world.

I didn't know him personally, but I used to come here and read posts. I loved his posts on Music. I noticed he hadn't been around, but simply thought he was busy with other things.
It was a great shock to learn of his death! R.I.P. Richard.
