Brother, Partner & Friend
Richard, Titch, dude, uncle or bro.
It didn’t matter how you knew Richard, all that mattered was you now have a friend for life.
You could sit and have a cuppa with Richard (or Titch as his family affectionately called him) and your troubles would fade, all be it for a while but that was Richard through and through, he didn’t even have to say anything, you just knew things would be OK in the end.
Richard was the ultimate joker, his quick wit and charm meant you were sucked in to his crazy world/family. Richard had a passion for gaming like no other, from playing them to to researching them to ahead of the curve for release day.
Sadly Richard passed away at the age of 32 after fighting a very rare form of genetic cancer (only 100 cases are known of this form), regardless of having this terrible disease Richard fought hard and his wit and charm never faded which is a testament to the kind of man he was!
