His enlightening & entertaining posting will be missed.

My condolences to his family & friends.

We were lucky to have him as an internet friend (& sometimes, antagonist  Grin ) as long as we did. . . .

As everyone above has said he will be missed! My condolences to his family, I'm sure he was a great husband, father, grandfather, friend & provider! Those of us from this board as well as the others he frequented have definetly definitely lost a true BUSNUT!  But he was more than that he was a true friend, source of inspiration & information, as well as a great moderator. And as also pointed out he did have his tendencies to call us out on spelling (or to correct it himself! LOL!), and occassionally occasionally as Kyle said he would antagonize or instagate. But those are the things that made Richard, as well as his passion for buses & busnuts. He was always there to try and help anyone who had a problem he could be of assistance on, and if he didn't know he'd try to find someone who did!  BK

Now I propose that we the members of THIS board dedicate a day, a rally, a part of this board, ar or anything that can and will be a constant memorial to him. So that those of us who knew him, and those who didn't & never will can always have something to remind of us him. Grin  BK  Grin

PS Hey Richard I DID use spell check & hand corrected my errors for YOU! LOL!

It never easy to accept the news about Richard Bowyer passing. Like all the nice thing said about Richard…he is truly a Bus Nut that putting all his effort trying his best in everything he did. It did well. Plus being a good father and laugher.

I never forget meeting him in one of the early Jack’s rally in Arcadia, FL. I always wanted to meet all of the But Nuts that I read & shared with on the Mak board. I will never forget him being with few nuts together chatting about buses. It a great memory to come back to. I am glad that I have met Richard.

The bottom-line is Richard was kind and a true gentleman.

Our prayer to his family.

Richard,

It is only your passing that has affected me this moment that distrubs me to no end.  We all have to leave and go home but the time I have known you I have enjoyed the respect you offer us all as a moderator and friend. 

Watch over us all my friend like you did on the board.

You are surely missed this very moment by me, see you on the other side one day.

To Richard's family, we extend our deepest sympathy.  Although it is never easy losing a loved one, I hope that the love and appreciation for Richard expressed here by so many will help ease your pain.  Richard had a heck of a life and we are glad to have known at least a little bit of him.  Christy Hicks

I have delayed posting because I just don’t know how to express the sadness I feel over loosing such a wonderful person as Richard. His loss will be felt for a long time.

It has taken a little while for me to get the point of posting my condolences
Every time I saw a post from “Driving Miss Lazy” the theme song from the
Movie of like naming would play through my head and with that good feeling I
Would read what Richard had to say. I will miss that very much. If the mark of a
Good man is by how many lives are touched in a positive way I feel that Richard
Was great!

So the question then arises “how do we pay our respects to a person who has added
So much?“ The thought I had was to create a memorial link for the people who have
Been so much a part of this board as to be considered family. In this link would be
Posted all the posts from that person under their name. (from their profile moved to
The new link)

I can think of no better way to honor someone than to put their posts out there so all
Can easily read (including the lurkers)

Just a thought………..

For all those who personally knew him may your heeling time be quick.

When I first read the "Driving Miss Lazy" user name I couldn't imagine anyone being that disrespectful to their wife. I soon found out that "Miss Lazy" wasn't what I thought it was and after meeting Richard and Janet at the second Timmonsville Rally I knew that couldn't be true.

Not only did Jackie and I enjoy that meeting but Richard and I enjoyed crossing idealogical swords through the years. It seems that we both had a similar background but I found out, very quickly, that he had a stronger foundation in his knowledge than did I.

And, as always, he was a gentleman in addressing this to me.

He will be sorely missed in our community and our hearts go out to his family.

Richard, may the BusGods smile on you and accept you in their midst as a
fountain of knowledge and love for our hobby.

I never met Richard not talked to him directly, but I have observed his postings for a number of years.  Aside from his comprehensive knowledge in many subjects, what I most appreciated was the dignity with which he expressed himself.  He was clearly an exceptional individual.  Best regards to all his family and friends.
