He was very proud of the generations of Lights and Kohls who settled the area. Although often a quiet man, he was very proud of his grandchildren and loved them very much. Richard enjoyed nice cars, good food, and a fine drink.
The family would like to thank Dr. Katie Kavanaugh and Hallmark Care and Rehabilitation Center for their loving care of Richard.
