So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s (Turtle) passing. Worked with him for many years at Metro and he truly will be missed. My prayers are with the Rich family in this time of sorrow. RIP my friend.
I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Rich’s passing. I met Mr. Rich when I was his neighbor. He would be out on his porch enjoying himself while drinking Diet Pepsi. He would tell me of his career and all he did in his life. I learned so much from him on how to raise a family and be a good person. I was surprised by how much he worked and how he never let anything or anyone stop him for providing for his family. I truly never met anyone in my life that I admired more than him. Mr. Rich, you are my role model and inspiration. I hope I can be half the man you were. Thank you for being my neighbor, friend and at times even like my dad. Rest in peace sir.
