Richard S Padilla Passed away peacefully on National Flag Day June 14, 2021

Survived by daughter’s; Lorretta, Yvonne “Bunny” Padilla, grandson’s Alejandro Silviano, Angelo Richard Padilla, who will carry his legacy of their Grandfather’s name.  He is also leaving behind many brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and friends.

Richard joined the Army and served in Vietnam, 101st  Airborne Screaming Eagles and was Honorably discharged.

Richard enjoyed fishing, hunting, gambling, playing checkers, gardening, and planting beautiful flowers.

Richard was well respected by many nephew’s reminiscing about good and bad times. The most memorable moments is Richards’s Big smile and his joking around, bragging about the hunting trips and the big fish that got away.

The Padilla family is grateful for the support and love during this difficult time. Please remember Richard always and forever.

Life is not measured by the numbers of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away.

 

" I am proud to salute my family and friends.

I will hold you close to my heart.

Until we meet again."

101st Airborn Army Veteran
