I CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, May 14, 2015 NEIGHBOR NEWS continued from page 6 Harvest your tomatoes when fully colored. Leave them on the plant an extra 5 - 6 days for even better flavor. Unfortunately, the animals often move in and feast on the ripening fruit. In this case, you may need to finish ripening toma- toes indoors. And once you taste that first red ripe tomato, you'll be looking for more sunny spots for containers or to expand your garden.

While serving in the Air Force, Rich was an instructor in the T-38, flew the UH-1N helicopter at Fairchild for Search and Re ue, and attended the Naval Test Pilot School in Patuxent River, Md. where he graduated top of his class. He retired from Edwards Air Force Base in California with the rank of Lt. Colonel after 20years of active service. Following his retirement in 1993, Rich and Karen, plus their two daughters, Erin and Jamie, returned to the Cheney area and spent a year building their new home, The Hying R Ranch. After a few years teaching at local col- leges, he was hired as a test pilot and engineer at Rocket Engineering in 1997. He was a member of the Experimental Aircraft Asso- ciation and enjoyed flying to Oshkosh, Wis. to attend their annual air show. Rich not only loved to fly but also enjoyed building airplanes and taking friends for rides in his plane, which he kept in his personal hanger on the ranch. He was physically active and ran several marathons and more than 20 Bloomsday races. On the ranch Rich was often found tending his herd of sheep, nurturing his home garden with help from his granddaughter and caring for all the animals that' their family has collected over the years. A life-long devoted Chris- tian and member of Cheney United Methodist Church, Rich lived his faith through service to others. Whether it was neighbors in need of help around their property or family projects or requests for volunteers at church, Rich was always eager and willing to lend ahand. Those who know him will remember him for his never-ending patience and non-anxious presence even when training novice pilots. Rich is survived by his wife, Karen and daughters Erin (Paul Jennings and granddaughter Ava) and Jamie(AdamWeingart). Me- morial services will be held Saturday, May 16 at 10:30 a.r at Cheney United Methodist Church at 204 Fourth St. (re- ception to follow) and Rocket Engineering at Felts Field at 5 p.m. Cheney Funeral Chapel.
