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 greatly enjoyed my conversations with Richard on this board about music. He was a fixture in the pro music establishment in Minneapolis for years, outfitting many studios. He often told of building one for Prince, with his real coup finding purple patch cables that Prince loved.
We would converse on DBSTalk about music in Minneapolis in the 1980s, with bands like the Jayhawks, Soul Asylum and Trip Shakespeare getting their start. He knew those guys and loved the scene. I marveled over his stories.
God's speed, Richard. I love you.

Fair winds and following seas to a friend who'll missed by many.
Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth. That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I am so sorry for his loss. It will be felt by us and many others. A sign of a good man.
Rest in peace and keep watch over us until we meet again.
