Richard passed away August 5, 2016, surrounded by his family, at MD Anderson Hospital following a "helluva" battle with cancer.
Richard was the Vice-President of a successful tree business, a "storm chaser" who enjoyed helping people in times of disaster.
Richard is survived by his loving wife, Gina, parents Lora Posey, Gene and Fredna Posey. Children Michael and wife Sonya, Dano and wife Chasity, and 11 grandchildren. Brother Glenn and wife Theresa, brother Kirk, and sister April, all of Old River. Sister Stephanie Losoya of McKinney, TX and brother Bryan Mitchell of Stuttgart, Germany. Numerous nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins and wonderful friends. He was the best "Papaw" ever.
Richard enjoyed life to the fullest and always with a smile on his face. He enjoyed traveling around the states, working with his family, never meeting a stranger.
Richard will always be loved and missed by all that knew him.
