We are sorry to learn about the passing of a great friend and co-entrepreneur, Richard Cyril Coad. He was a well-known commercial and wedding photographer.  He will be missed by the many clients he served here in Central Florida.
Rick was a kind and gentle spirit. He was a wonderful friend to all of us who knew him and his amazing intelligence, sense of humor and compassion will always be remembered.  Photography was just one of his many talents. He built guitars from scratch and spent time restoring car engines.  He was an avid guitarist and enjoyed joining his brother and other musicians when time allowed to play the tunes he loved.  Somewhere up there he is playing “Stairway to Heaven” his favorite guitar piece.
Close to his heart were his nephew and his nieces, and he even found the time to work with our own grandson, Dylan, teaching him guitar methods when he was younger.  Dylan is grown and even today enjoys playing the guitar which has enriched his life. He has Rick to thank for this wonderful gift of music, and mourns his passing.
During his life, Rick touched many other lives, always ready to help those in need. The world is a little colder with his passing.
Our loss is great!
