Obituary For Richard Mark Nabors

Rich passed away earlier this month in Asheville,North Carolina. He had just celebrated his 52nd birthday on Dec. 01, 2021.

He leaves behind his mother, Deborah Nabors-Barlow, younger brother, Jack Barlow (girlfriend Melissa Rosenberg), step father, Jack (Bobby) Barlow, only niece, Hayley Barlow, and his fiance, Melissa Shatzer.

Richard grew up in Michigan and was currently working in North Carolina, at a job he absolutely loved and was extremely passionate at. He was working hard to save up every penny for his new life with the love of his life, Melissa Shatzer. They planned on getting married in 2022.

Richard loved life and had a heart of gold. There wasn't anyone he wouldn't help if they needed him. He was loved by everyone and everyone that knew him, loved him.
Richard had been the happiest he had been in years. He was walking a path with our Lord and was excited for the future.

The family is planning a memorial in the spring of 2022.
