Richard joined the Company on October 4, 1939. Since that time, until his death on March 11, 1987, he served in numerous offices and committees within the Company.  In 47 years of membership, he was an inspiration to everyone in his knowledge of buildings, trucks, and fire fighting techniques. The Guardian Hose Company, Inc. was number one in his heart and soul. His devotion was shown in the time he contributed to the success of the Company. His legacy will continue on in the Company by his two sons, Dick and Bob Willhide.
