Wilbur, Richard R.'s Guestbook

I remember Richard well from his membership at Bloomington Baptist Church. And, as youth pastor, was privileged to work with two of his children, Mona and Russ. Richard was a devoted husband and father. I recall the new home he and Gail built in the late 70's, a home uniquely designed to meet their own hopes and dreams. May Richard rest in the loving arms of our Lord.

To Ray, Mona, Russ and Malana… (and your families) Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers as I just found out of Dad’s hone going… Mom was at the gate to welcome him in and show him around ❤️ I have so many wonderful memories of our times together and I cherish them all… thankful I was blessed to know him. Absent from the body… Present with the Lord…
