So many good memories. Remembering all the tree houses on sixth street and always a positive word and a friendly smile. In later years, when we met him at church, he always made us feel like long lost friends and just so genuinely glad we were there. Really one of the nicest and most humble man we've ever known. Prayers for your family...Dana & Debbie Strouts

Thank you for your prayers. Dad was truly a faithful servant of the Lord. We miss him very much but are at peace that he is with our dear Lord, and reunited with Mom and Grandma and all those he loved who passed before him. Cindy and Jay do not feel we should hold a funeral service at this time due to Covid concerns, so we hope to have a celebration of life in the future to honor our dear father. We will keep you posted. Bless you. Gayle (Warner) Nelson

I remember Richard when I was pastor at Solomon. He sat in front of my wife and me each Sunday. He was so encouraging to us and he always looked forward to a hug. I have so many wonderful memories of him. I will be praying for your family during this season of grief and loss. Pastor Roland Slater

We wish to convey our sympathies to the family of Richard Warner. He was always so pleasant to be around. We enjoyed all conversations with Gwen and Richard at family gatherings. We know he was a loving husband and father and a valuable member of the Solomon community for many years. Telma and Nathan Reed
