Richard was an important part of our family for over thirty five years. There were many, many happy celebrations with only a few sad times sprinkled in that we shared. He was kind, generous and willing to share his knowledge and wisdom. He loved his family and friends and will be missed by all.
Judy, Christine, Kathleen, Rick and Rob: We offer you our most sincere condolences and deepest sympathies during this difficult time. you have lost your best friend and partner, father and mentor. We know he provided you all the strength to persevere and thrive in life and to be your best, just as he was. Love to all. 07/2019
Brother: You lived a good life, mostly on your own terms. You raised a great family and encouraged a great community of people to be their best at what they do in life. We will miss you in this world and look forward to seeing you in the next. Happy knowing you are no longer in pain. Godspeed, Richard. George
It’s very sad to hear about Richard. I was always glad to see him and will miss that occasional “run into”. I’m so sorry for the family loss. 😇
Richard Stump was a Great Man. For those of us who have been with ASG oh so long through several acquisitions; even many years after Richards retirement his name comes up in conversation as the best example of work ethic and what we have become over these many years as employees of ASG. Richard Stump will truly be missed but never forgotten. The night sky will sparkle more with him as the brightest shining star.
Thoughtful, calculated, sincere and quiet while absent a negative thought in his body, Richard Stump made Kentucky a better place. Professionally, he presided over Administrative Services Group, Inc. (100+ employees) providing services to employer sponsored retirement plans and association sponsored medical insurance plans while seeing they were compliant with ERISA. His actions and leadership saved employers and employees hundreds of millions of dollars over his career. Personally, he loved and encouraged all who were around him. Oh my! Richard Stump left a huge footprint and will be missed greatly.
