They enjoyed a very blended family full of lots of love, joy, up’s and down’s. There has never been a dull moment in this family, but non would have it any different. Richard and Ina enjoyed Golf, watching the Sacramento Kings, they were both avid San Francisco 49er fans, they loved to camp and fish, but more than anything they both loved spending time with family.
He was a truck driver by trade, a very hard worker, he had a very big heart. There were times that he was misunderstood, but no one ever doubted his heart, or that they were absolutely loved by him. There was nothing better than a hug given by this Dad and Papa.
Richard was proceeded in death by his wife Ina, survived by Sons Richard Frye, Jeff Frye, John Alameda; Daughters, Cindy Alameda, Julie Eddlemon, Nina Frye-Santiago and Joyce Frye, as well as many grandkids and great grandchildren.
