  1. All you can say at a time like this “I’m so sorry, he was so young”. My love to everyone, Sincerely,
    Peggy Strilich Marshall

  2. Rich was a co-worker and a friend in the Creede mines and was talented in so many ways. He played at my senior prom, he taught me, a miner, how to work on minature electronics. He did much more than keep the electricity flowing in the mine. He fixed everything we miners could break, from jack-leg drills to pickup trucks to hammer handles. I’ll miss him. God bless, my friend, rest in peace.

    HOS 13:14 “I will ransom them from the power of the grave;
    I will redeem them from death.
    Where, O death, are your plagues?
    Where, O grave, is your destruction?

  3. I am so sorry to here about Richard. My thoughts and prayers are with you Love Betsy Strilich Baker
