Richard Henry Cuevas, Sr. passed away January 2, 2018 at the age of 67 in his home in Patterson, California. He was born in San Francisco, and later moved to Santa Clara, then San Jose, and finally to Patterson.
Richard worked as a Union Shop Steward for the United States Postal Service for 18 years in Cupertino, and most recently as Security at the Frontier Club in Patterson. He was a devout Oakland Raider fan, loved watching them play and attending games with family and friends. Richard will forever be remembered as having a huge heart and his crazy sense of humor. He was always there to listen, give advice and make you laugh. “Always be a leader, not a follower” were his words of wisdom we will never forget.
