Richard Slack

Richard Slack lacked a middle name. “It was supposed to be Foster after mom, but the people at the hospital forgot to write it down on my birth certificate.” Richard Slack, 73, passed away Tuesday, March 10, 2009 in Cumming, Ga., of respiratory failure at Northside Hospital-Forsyth. Per Richard’s request, there will be no service. “There is nothing that anybody can do.” Although his teeth were false, his smile was genuine—his million dollar smile—his greatest asset.
