Obituary for Richard Saunders

Richard David Saunders was born May 11, 1962 in Groton, Connecticut, but was a resident of Mt. Washington, KY for 24 years. He served in the United States Navy and was currently employed by HP Pelzer in Thomson, GA. He died Monday, September 5, 2016.

Richard is survived by his wife of 22 years, Mikie; his daughters: Nikki (Remond) Goode, Brittany (Tommy) Clemens, and Chelsey Adams; and his 10 grandchildren: Makayla, Bailie, Zane, Collin, Logan, Braedon, Rylee, Aubrie Grace, Molliana, and Charlie Marie.

His funeral will be 10 am Monday at Schmid Funeral Home in Mt. Washington with Deacon Gerry Mattingly presiding. Burial will be in St. Francis Xavier Cemetery. Visitation will be 1-8 pm on Sunday.

"Some people walk in our lives for just a moment, but stay in our hearts forever."

And in our heart is exactly where Richard will forever be. To know him, was to love him. He was a loyal friend, devoted husband, proud father, and above all, he was the world's best "pop-pop". His love was unconditional and always without limits. Richard was someone who made you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and live life a little better. And better we are, because of him. With Richard's death, we lost a friend, a husband, a dad, and pop-pop.

"How lucky are we to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard?"

Please pray for Richard's eternal rest and joy in the Kingdom.
