  • Please accept my deepest condolence’s. Rich was a good, nice, funny dude with a great smile, he was “good people”. To all family and friends, I am truly sorry and sad. I will keep all in daily prayers.

  • To Jenny, Heather, Cody, and the rest of the family, my heart just breaks for you. I loved Rich, and at one point he was one of my best friends. (When he was redoing the trailer, and after Laurie died.) When I heard of your passing, knowing how hard you was trying to change your lifd for the better, it totally shocked me. You would come over every day after Laurie passed, to deal with the grief in your own way. We had such good times when we was living in the trailer, a speedway run meant 8 pops, not just one or two. I will forever be greatful that God put you in my life. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

  • To the whole Setter Family, im so sorry to hear of the loss of Richard. He was a great man and I kno from experience he loved all of you and would have done anything for you. My thought and prayers are with you thru these times.

  • My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time of sorrow. May God’s guardian angels surround you and comfort you at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you Brad, Joe, Marlene and the rest of the Setser family. Till we meet again. God bless!
