    I first met Richard about 24 years ago and stopped at his gated community when I was driving through California. He showed me his vast collection of aviation items of which he was very knowledgable. It is a shame that he has passed away. It was people like him that have made this hobby/business enjoyable.

    Rest in Peace Richard!!!!

    Richard and I spoke many times over the phone and he was always willing to teach a fellow collector. I've learned many things from Richard over the years and his posts will always live on for all members to use a learning tool. You will be missed my friend!!!!!

    Our buddy Richard P

    Well, as I was logging on to the WAF right now, I thought how much I really miss our friend Richard. The WAF is a great help to us all, and can make us laugh or cry. I really see a change here without him chiming in on the Panzer wrap from hell, or a bogus Stug wrap. I was just really getting to know him before he passed. I think I will go back and look at the funny TK thread, and laugh at some of his posts there. To our buddy Richard P, I miss you man, and I mean it. Smitty

    For Richard,

    A guy who made the effort to keep in touch with me a year ago almost to the day when the chips were down. Gone but not forgotten on WAF mate,

    "Not Understood" by Thomas Bracken


    Not understood, we move along asunder;
    Our paths grow wider as the seasons creep
    Along the years; we marvel and we wonder
    Why life is life, and then we fall asleep
    Not understood.

    Not understood, we gather false impressions
    And hug them closer as the years go by;
    Till virtues often seem to us transgressions;
    And thus men rise and fall, and live and die
    Not understood.

    Not understood! Poor souls with stunted vision
    Oft measure giants with their narrow gauge;
    The poisoned shafts of falsehood and derision
    Are oft impelled 'gainst those who mould the age,
    Not understood.

    Not understood! The secret springs of action
    Which lie beneath the surface and the show,
    Are disregarded; with self-satisfaction
    We judge our neighbours, and they often go
    Not understood.

    Not understood! How trifles often change us!
    The thoughtless sentence and the fancied slight
    Destroy long years of friendship, and estrange us,
    And on our souls there falls a freezing blight;
    Not understood.

    Not understood! How many breasts are aching
    For lack of sympathy! Ah! day by day
    How many cheerless, lonely hearts are breaking!
    How many noble spirits pass away,
    Not understood.

    O God! that men would see a little clearer,
    Or judge less harshly where they cannot see!
    O God! that men would draw a little nearer
    To one another, -- they'd be nearer Thee,
    And understood.

    Yes - I also liked his style very much.

    Sad to see that he is gone forever.

    Ruhe in Frieden, Richard.

    Very saddened by this totally unexpected news on Richard.

    Richard and I became good friends this past summer exchanging numerous phone calls and emails, having discussions on wraps, discussions on our fathers and sharing photos of each others collections. A warm and genuine man who will be sorely missed by many.

    My deepest condolence to Richard's family.

    I've known Richard for a number of years, but never met him in person. He had a lot of energy, so I had always imagined him to be a lot younger than in the photo someone put up. How old was he actually?

    Richard P

    I first talked to Richard when we were both collecting AVG items. On a business trip to California about 10 years ago he invited me out to his house to see his collection. His AVG and CBI collections were fantastic and even though I also collect German WW2 items I usually only spoke with him about AVG items as his knowledge on these items was extensive and he knew where so many items were. I was shocked to hear about his passing as the last time I talked to him was at the SOS. Strange but the English collector ( Chris John ) he sold alot of his AVG items to also died suddenly 4 years ago of a brain aneurysm at the age of 48. Both were great guys and I will miss both of them. RIP Rich.
