Memorial Wall

  1. Richard is my Brother. Richard and I were hired together at Clark County Fire District 12 with four other brothers. We completed our rookie acadamy together, and were well on our way to completing our rookie year together. We were all looking forward to many years together. Richard was a great mentor in life to me. His even demeanor and kind heart were infectious and soothing. A great man was taken from his family, his brothers and our community much before his time. I love you Richard. We will allways remember the good times. Richard is my Brother…
