A memorial bench dedicated in memory of a well-known Espanola man, Rolly Richer, was installed at the Black Creek Pier by his daughter Lisa Lovean and son Jamie Richer.

The Espanola Game and Gish Association agreed the pier would be the perfect spot since their dad loved to fish there.

Rolly passed away in February and was well known for his big smile, outgoing personality and helping hand.

The bench dedication took place Wednesday.
