COURTLAND – Richard Joseph Lake, 53, grandson of Lucille E. and Richard B. Myers and Richard J. Lake has been called to be with both his beloved grandparents and his big brother, who have preceded him in this journey.

Richard was born in Davenport, Iowa on Aug. 17, 1968, along with his twin sister, Lori J. Miller to Phyllis L. Bankston and the late Ronald L. Lake Sr. He is survived by two siblings, Lori J. Miller of Chesapeake and Denise A. Lake of Courtland.

Richard was a lifelong plantsman/horticulturist and animal lover. He had a green thumb that also doubled as a perch for his beloved birds through the years. He was a loyal brother and friend with a deep appreciation for his mother. He loved music and movies and had a laugh that was very contagious to those around him.
