Richard totally changed my perception of what working on contracts and liaising with legal meant. Always working so hard and diligently with a full understanding of the commercial objective. Having calls at any time, but always finishing them with a smile or a very ironic comment that would make you laugh and forget for a moment how late in the day it was…
Someone as busy and demanded as Richard, who takes the time to personally check on you when he felt it might be needed is just priceless and impossible to forget. I was in shock to learn the terrible news, I still am, and I can only imagine the huge loss for his wife and family. Rest in peace Richard and look after us from where you are now, the World needs more people like you.
