Richard was the oldest of my five sons. He was a wonderful family man and a wonderful son. I am very proud of him and all his accomplishments. He was a telephone lineman, an officer at CYO and a wonderful Chef! He leaves behind many happy memories

To know Richard was to love him. He was a kind & thoughtful man who always made you feel like you were special & was a godly man. He did not say negative things about others & always was smiling & had a great dispensation.
Even though it has been years since I saw him, his memory of what a great guy he was was always in my heart at the thought of him. His wife truly loved him & his kids did too, Sorry for the family. God bless & prayers to you all.

Richard, my big buddy from the phone company in Paso Robles. I'll always remember you as a man whose heart and kindness was bigger than his stature, my friend.

I remember visiting Richard with Penny and both our families for his Bar BQ's in Heritage ranch, we all had good times.
Whenever Richard got together with me and the gang at work for lunch he led us in prayer.
Also when I would visit Richard, Terisa, Angela Katlyn and Emily I would say we were entering the land of the giants. This was a running joke since my family was so small in comparison. Richard was a great example of a family man and father as can be seen by his beautiful wife and daughters.
Richard will be missed for a time by us, but we will all see him again someday.

If I mention Boltboth of my are boys know exactly who Im talking about Over the many years of my friendship with both Teresa and Richard, Richard made a very big impression on them.
One year in particular, instead my birthday party tradition of having my friend come to my oldest sons birthday party as a clown, Jesstin at 5 years old announced he wanted a cowboy to come to his birthday party. I thought How in the world am I going to accommodate this request? Angela was attending my in-home preschool at the time and somehow Richard found out about his request and showed up in FULL GEARbolo, chaps, and two 6 shooters Not only did he make Jesstins day but it was so much fun to watch him interacting with all of the kids; I saw a whole new side of Richard Boultinghouse. What an awesome, patient, loving mentor he was to all of those kids sharing all of his knowledge about Cowboys and pistols.
Teresa and I were friends first. But my Richard and her Richard become fast friends. Bolt was always so generous to mentor my Richard, who was an outstanding cook also, with some of his secrets to making great barbecue chicken and spaghetti sauce. I do believe my Richard may have shared his secrets to a great salsa

You are going to be greatly missed give my Richard a great big cowboy hug.

Until we meet again,

Richard and Teresa were our good friends and neighbors . Cottage Grove Or. We shared meals, at their place and ours. And occasionally at the Restaurant. Why? Richard was super skilled at putting together a delicious meal. My best memory. His amazing angel story. Richard certainly had a gift to tell a great story.
We will fondly remember him. Sigh .His story was true, Mike and Sue
