Trickle laid his body down in a cemetery, next to his truck, before he took his life. The cemetery was in Boger City, North Carolina, the site where his granddaughter, who preceded him in death, is also buried.

Trickle made sure that his body could be found by first responders, by calling the Lincoln County Communication Center to let them know what he was doing. He let them know a body would be in the cemetery, and that the body was his. Chuck Trickle maintains Richard ended his life due to the immense pain he had that doctors couldn’t treat.
