2 Tributes to Richard Mark Common

  1. Chad Common says:

    Uncle Richard, from my first memories brought laughter to an entire room his whole life. He had a way to tease and trick everyone with everyone laughing in a good hearted way. Which by the way no one was safe. Lee takes after his Dad in that way. I had the pleasure of working hand in hand with Uncle Richard right after college but before teaching. He trained me at organizing and pulling parts for the shop. Obviously he has a lot of real life experiences so I listened and learned closely from the master. That brought us a bit closer than we ever were and I appreciate that time with him. I love you Uncle Richard Rest In Peace.

    Marcella, Mary Ann, Bobby, Cheryl and Lisa. We are so heart broken for the loss of Richard. We will always remember Richard running around the neighborhood on Westmore St, being ornery with our kids. Thoughts and prayers to all.

    Much Love, John and Anne Silagy
