Richard Headrick from Dora High School Class of 1970 passes away
Note: Jilda and I were out of town this weekend and it broke my heart to hear about the passing of Richard Headrick. He was a friend of mine.
Richard graduate in the class with Jilda, but I knew him long before high school.
Many people knew him from his years at The Green Top, but we played little league baseball near where he grew up in Hull. His brother Preston, his mother Susie and father Leo, as well as his kids, and grandkids were alway kind to me.
Richard will be missed.
