    I first met Richard whilst at uni. He had a cheekiness and playful side that was obvious from the get go. Now mix that with a desire for adventure and an intense energy rarely matched and it’s no wonder why i have so many fond memories of us together....  more

    I first met you on the Goldie after your travels, when you and fee decided to make a life for yourself here. You were a smart, energetic, and an exuberant human who had the ability to lift up anyone’s spirits. The first time I met you was out...  more

    Rest in peace, Rich. I hadn't seen you for a long time but I was so sad to hear this news. You were such a lovely person. Thoughts are with you, your family and those close at this very difficult time.

    Barks. How you would party through term, live life to the full and then study for a week and come out with top marks was incredibly frustrating for everyone else but just showed what a talented and personable person you were. You were good at sport,...  more

    We met as 2 smooth faced, worry free kids travelling the world and boy I’m glad we did. There’s nobody on this planet I’ve shared so many good times with as you so there’s no way I could pick only 1 photo to sum it up with. Looking through them,...  more

    Hey Richie, I will forever cherish the good times we spent together on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and NZ. Your Infectious and cocky personality was what everybody loved about you.
    A great memory i have of us was when the 2 of us decided to go to a Gold...  more

    I went to school with Rich. We shared lifts to school morning and night and the poor guy had to put up travelling with my mad family. I am so very sorry for 1. The lateness for chapel and 2. The bad music and Dad jokes!

    A great man who was so...  more

    Barker - I can’t believe when I saw what had happened. We met and hung out at Uni and you were always up for a great night out! We chatted every now and again when you were in Australia about running our own businesses.
    You were a great friend to so...  more

    Barker, I’d struggle to share just one memory as you provided me with so many great times because of infectious personality, kind nature and altogether awesomeness!! I’ll never forget your generosity when I came out and stayed with you on the Gold...  more

    Though I still find it so unreal, and as I look at your photos I can't quite believe it has happened, at least I have this memory to keep me smiling.

    You kindly escorted me around a theme park while I visited Oz. As we entered, we took a selfie to...  more
