Richard was preceded in death by his parents Jose Sedillo and Gertrude Montoya Sedillo; brothers his twin James(Jimmy), Tony and Joseph; many dear Aunts and Uncles.

He loved to play dominos, dancing and going to the senior center. He also loved Cookies and Chocolate and Ice cream. His last meal was a nutty buddy. He especially loved his grandchildren and all children. They would always put a smile on his face. He loved walking in the back yard looking at the garden and counting how many watermelons there were. He loved to see the chickens, give them treats and he enjoyed watching the baby chicks that were hatching in the incubator. He was very giving and would help anyone. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and especially his son Chris and Michael who took care of him in his later years.

Special thanks to all his Doctors and Nurses. We would like to recognize Dexter Fields, Dr. Lisa Payant, and at the Los Volcanes Senior Center, the staff at Share your Care, Jennifer, Joel, Gina, Lisa and Patricia.
