Richard was my uncle on the Porter side. I have many fond memories of spending time on the farm and in Moffet with the Meyer family and the extended Porter family. Richard was always kind to this, "city kid" from Glendive who was pretty dumb about animals and farm equipment. He was one of the "fathers" who taught me to be a better man.
