Mr. Medley was a kind and dependable fixture of my youth and I am so grateful for his giving example and for the great daughters he raised that I am blessed to know. I am still touched by how he found jobs for me to do so that he could find a way to help contribute to my college education. He was an giver of good gifts - a quality which I continue to admire and hope to emulate. We miss you!
Richard Allan Medley
September 15, 1958 - October 10, 2020
My deepest sorrow, for the loss of a wonderful human being, who gave his all to make our lives enriched. I have so many good memories of Richard growing up, and all the times he came to my house to play RISK of course I never won a game. But we played many days and nights. The times he would come over for me to cut his hair. Guess I did a good job, he would come back for many more. As I sit here at my computer, with tears streaming down my face, I am still in shock. Rich made a impact on all our lives, he was a giver and he never forgot any of us back home. I want to say to Carolyn and his daughters, that I am so, so sorry, and I pray that each day you find comfort in looking and remembering all the wonderful, fun times you shared as a family. Richard loved his wife dearly, and he found so much joy in his daughters. I know his in-laws love him, and valued his time here in earth.
In closing, I just want to say, that I just pray that Richards passing will be a not in vain, but with a purpose.
My heartfelt condolences go out to Caroline and the whole family. Since I heard of his passing, I have had many great memories come back to me. For me, as for many people, Richard was a colorful character and we shared many memorable experiences together in our youth in Coshocton, at the Naval Academy, and after graduation in Boston and Connecticut. I can remember many times when one of Richard's pranks left me doubled over with laughter and I can still hear Richard's laugh when I think about it. Prayers for Richard and family.
