So sorry to hear that Rich has passed. I have childhood memories of him when he was being coached by my dad for the ritual contests. I sometimes had to go with my dad, and played in that big room at the Elks Lodge. I believe that Rich was on that National winning team . Just wanted to send my condolences and tell you how much my father thought of Rich.

My sister Carol just called me at work to tell me cousin Richard had died. Didn't see the Todd's a lot but it was always great fun. Our Grandmother Zilpha Lehmer always kept us updated on family. Peace to you all, cousin Mary Jane.

I'm sad to hear that cousin Rich has died. We didn't often see each other but I have fond memories of visiting the Todd farm when I was young. I was jealous of Rich and Charlie getting to live at such a neat place. I saw him last at my mom's funeral where we all shared good memories. He was a really nice guy. I'm a Lehmer cousin. Peace to all of you. cousin Carol
