    The world is a better place because of the lives that Richard influenced during his lifetime. His commitment to scouting had a positive influence on the life of my family and countless others. I am not sure how many scouts received the rank of Eagle Scout because of his leadership but I know that that many of us from Troop 200 will be forever grateful for his commitment to build character and perseverence in our sons. Janie & Brad, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you as you deal with your grief.
