Richard was a true individual. The world is less when any of those pass on.

RIP Armadillo.

I saw on Facebook and logged in to just say I enjoyed his posts over the years. He built me a set of skates too and they work. I'm sure he is skating in a better place now anyway.

Very sad

He made a great contribution to these forums and inspired me to start building and tweaking skates through his posts. He will indeed be missed.

Sad news.
I noticed last summer after he injured his foot-ankle and was on pain reducing medicines his posts were rather less than lucid, and sadly, his last series of posts were similar, I was wondering if he was under medication, well he was very stubborn, being agnostic (me), I know where he is now, but "let's pretend otherwise"... I'm sure that there was a large amount of effort applied by whatever powers that be to get him to change locations.

Persistent and consistant he was, one that never gave up on his beliefs. RIP Richard, you will be missed.
