Richard Houston May Jr.

Published 9:48 am Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Richard Houston May Jr. “Richy,” son, husband, father, brother and friend, was taken away from us unexpectedly and way to soon on Friday, Sept. 11, 2015. He was 34 years old.

Richy loved working on cars, boats, anything he could tinker with. He absolutely loved riding motorcycles, especially with his daddy, Richard. But what he loved the most was his family and his friends, especially his three children.

Richy was the guy that would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it, even if it meant he wouldn’t have one. Those that really knew him loved him. And he loved them in return with his whole heart. He was awaiting the arrival of his first nephew due next month.
