Richard Lee Marrison

April 15, 1972 ~ December 27, 2018 (age 46)




Richard Marrison was 46 years old.  He leaves behind his fiancée Sabah Alhaqq and their two children Adrianna and Richard Marrison.  He also leaves behind his daughters; Destiny, Crystal, and Marissa Marrison.  His mother Deborah Jean Marrison. His siblings; Theresa Solomon, Tia Troutman, Rayon Marrison, Tiana Fidler, Rashaad Todd, Raymond Todd and Timothy Morrison.  His grandma Betty Caplin and his Aunt Wonda Caplin along with many nieces and nephews.


            Richard was known as the MacGyver of the family because he was very cleaver.  He could fix gadgets, escape tight situations, he was protective, and he had very little fear.  When Richard was about two, he would climb up a chair unlock the door with multiple locks on it and go down the street to a neighbor's for pancakes.  As a small boy, he would lead his sister Teresa down a rope made of sheets tied together out a two-story window to lead her on many adventures, one was sneaking on a property to ride horses.                                                                      A common memory people have of his charter is he was protective.  If a questionable situation arose, he would make others feel safe. In his teenage life, he would jump over the hoods of cars and acted as if he was invincible.  And not long ago, Richard was going to use the TV antenna to give his car a jump. When Sabah asked if it would work, he answered, "I don’t know.  Let's see."  Thank goodness a neighbor had jumper cables. 

            Richard loved the thrill of life and living on the edge. He was always up for a good risk.  He skydived, scuba dived, rode his bicycle 300 miles, and walked great distances.  He loved cooking, being outside, camping, fishing, driving, and riding his motorcycle.

            To know Richard, you had to know you did not know all of him.  He kept his life very compartmentalized and would let you know things on a need to know basis as he saw fit.  He would say," If you want to know something you need to ask the right questions."  "White lies are not lies, they are just not full truths."  And," You can't bleed a turnip."

            Richard brought many people love and joy.  He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his smile, and laughter.


            Sleep well Rich, you will be missed. He is preceded in death by his nephew Tiekarian Troutman

Not Enough Time
The time we had, Dad, Wasn't nearly enough
To pack in an entire Lifetime of love.
There are so many questions That I need answers to,
But now that you're gone There's no way to ask you.
But there are still photos To remember you by,
Each time I look at them, I still want to cry.
They say grief is easier to bear as time goes by,
But the doesn't stop me from wondering why?
Why my dear, sweet dad Was taken so soon,
When he was my guiding star, My sun and my moon.
There are no answers To a question like this, So I'll cherish your memory,
And mourn the years we'll miss.
