He was “Pop” to his one and only great-granddaughter, whom he worshipped: Lorelei Elizabeth Lacoste age 3.

He loved playing rummy, fishing, mowing the lawn (anyone’s lawn), but most of all he loved people and adored his family and wife. A beautiful soul, a selfless man who loved unconditionally making everyone feel as though they were his favorite. He was a father to many and friend to all. Even in death, his loving and generous spirit continues to touch lives. His final act of giving was of himself to the University Of Mississippi Medical Center, where students will gain invaluable knowledge. His ultimate gift will further medical science and help to save many lives.

The team was so kind, caring, compassionate and professional. To Terri and Mandy, we are eternally grateful. A special thanks to Father Paddy Mockler for your prayers and visitation which gave peace and comfort to our family.

Richard was a wonderful man, very kind and compassionate. All of you have been in my thoughts and prayers.


Thank you


Dad, all of my life I have enjoyed experiencing the simple yet beautiful things of nature that only you could bring to my attention; like a flower, a squirrel in a tree or a tiny bird that would have gone unnoticed. We have had so much fun together for so many years playing cards, basketball, fishing, hunting, welding, doing the lawn, working on cars and electronics just to name a few, leaving me with a diverse set of skills. Lol. What I cherish the most is feeling how much you loved me every second of my life. I felt so safe as a child. I knew everything would be alright when you gave me one of your cute winks. I will miss seeing the twinkle in your eyes when you smile, your almost daily phone calls starting with “hey little girl”, and showing you off to my friends how you can wiggle your ears. You will always be my #1 ❤️ Your baby girl, Renee
