Since 1953, Lankford has been known by many as "the voice of Princeton Tiger sports." The Lankford family owns WRAY radio station in Princeton.
His nephew, Steve Lankford, tells us Richard will be remembered as a positive "people-person" who lived life to the fullest.
Lankford's showing will be held this Wednesday evening at Hillside Church in Princeton starting at 4 p.m. The public is invited to pay their respects.
