Richard Needham's Dad

Richard's Dad died in his sleep early Tuesday morning, September 23, 2008, at his home surrounded by his loving family. I don't imagine many Gate City Rotarians knew him.  After reading his obituary, I wish I had. I can tell his life was rich, just by just knowing the person Richard is.  Richard's Dad had a Christmas Tree farm.  So did my Dad.  I'm glad we share that in common. 

Dorothy Downey was kind to let us know visitation is tonight, Wednesday September 24, at Forbis & Dick North Elm Street Chapel from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, September 25, at First Presbyterian, 617 North Elm Street with Rev. Rhonda Davis officiating.  Interment will follow at the Ether United Methodist Church Cemetery, 229 Ether Road, Ether, NC 27247.

Richard and Mary, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
