  1. A beautiful tribute to Richard. He will be greatly missed by all at MCC.
    My deepest sympathies to Richards family and friends.

  2. Thank you for sharing Richard’s memorial service with us all.
    I was fortunate to sit near to Richard at City of Melbourne for 8 years. He was so very patient and generous with his time and transfer of knowledge. I knew I could ask Richard any question regarding land in the city and he would know it like the back of his hand. He was so unassuming and really was the ‘King’.I will upgrade my ‘reds cupboard’ and toast to a great man on the 17th of June!
    My deepest sympathies to Richard’s family and close friends, his legacy lives on.

  3. Daniel, Scott Graham and all the speakers, well done.What a fantastic tribute to a great guy, whom left his mark with all of us !
    I will always fondly remember Christmas Day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and all birthdays as special occasions which represented great opportunities to work through the cellar, lingering much longer than we should of . Sadly gone too soon, but always in my memories.

  10. Thank you for sharing Richard’s life. To me he was an expert in Surveying and sharer of great wine. He will always be the King.

  11. Richard was a good family friend and will be missed.

    May the happy memories of Richard continue to be shared and looked fondly upon.

  12. Celebration of life as Richard lived it. Thanks for allowing us to hear of his later years, as we remember him as a young lad full of mischief and a knowledgeable smile of the joke that had been played.
    Love to you Karen and the boys Scott and Daniel.
    Thinking of you cousin
