I met Rich in the loan process. He exuded experience and his approach so logical and helpful. An obvious loss to all that knew him. My condolences to his family.

To the Horton family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

Diana Young and your AT&T teammates

My condolences to Rich's family. Rich got me started in business at Avco, taught me how to believe in myself, and what is important in life. He was a very good man and always committed to doing the right thing. I'll never forget his mentorship and his friendship. Thank you Rich - you will be missed! Don Wallace
