Beloved husband, father, son brother and friend.
Richard was born in San Bernadino, California, to Carlton and Beatrice Lemons. Richard married Gay Wilmot in June 1977.
When in Southern California, Richard and his brother owned and operated a chrome plating business. After relocating to Oregon, Richard was a truck driver. He enjoyed driving log truck where in the early mornings he could be in the forest and breathe in the fragrance of each new day.
Richard was entrepreneurial and artistic by nature. He looked at everything and would always wonder how he could make it better. He was also very passionate about his many hobbies and interests, including golf, fishing, and watching any sport on television.
Richard is survived by his wife Gay, children Tim and Deana, grandchildren Rachel and Anthony, Luke and Sasha, Rory, Kaitlyn, Ethan, Cameron, Grace and great granddaughter Leighton, mother Beatrice, brother Marlin.
There will be a Celebration of Richard's Life held at Foothills Community Church 122 Grange Ave in Molalla, Feb. 9, 2019 at 10:30 am. For map and directions, visit foothillsonline.com.
