Richard Lee Nellum, age 50, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and formerly of Roanoke, Virginia, passed away suddenly on Monday, April 13, 2020. Loving son of Gwendolyn Nellum and the late Charles Ramsey; brother of Tamika Nellum and Dontae Nellum; also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Richard had such a beautiful loving soul. He was known for his amazing smile. He was always willing to help others in need. He had a passion for nature and loved working in the Landscape industry. “God said Come To Me….God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you, and whispered “Come to me”. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.” We love you Rickie…you may be gone but never forgotten, you will be truly missed. Private arrangements entrusted to Pittsburgh Cremation and Funeral Care, Robinson Township, Pennsylvania.

Big bro I love you so much, I miss you so much, we all are in disbelief right now. But know that we are going to make it do what it do, you're back home now in Ohio and we are going to celebrate you to the fullest. God knows best I know but it's so much I wanted to say that I didn't get to say and it hurts so bad but I know you're still listening to me. Until we see eachother again, watch over us Rick, I know you're in good hands now.
