Richard faced many challenges in his life but felt so blessed to have loving, caring, supportive family always there to help in any way they could.

Richard’s loving family include his mother Arlene Neer; half-sister Angelia McGuffin, nephews Jacob McGuffin and Elijah McGuffin; aunt Marilyn Meade Hanson and several very special cousins and many precious aunts, uncles, cousins and several dear friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Clair Neer, brothers Cole Neer and William “Billy” Neer, and grandparents.
