Wow unbelievable.

It's sad a lot of these guys have died and Richard was by

far the closest to even reach 70 years of age.

RIP

Richard was one of the longest serving members of the Temptations:

Otis Williams (1960-present) (53 years)

Melvin Franklin (1960-1994) (34 years)

Ron Tyson (1983-present) (30 years)

Richard Street (1971-1992) (21 years)

Dennis' entire tenure with the Tempts was approximately and roughly 12.5 years. The original Tempts such as Eddie and Paul served about 11 years each. David Ruffin was only in it for four amazingly enough. Eddie and David added an extra year after briefly rejoining in 1982. Ali-Ollie Woodson was in it roughly 13 years.


Terry Weeks has remained a Temptation since 1997 so he's the fifth longest-serving member at 16 years.

I thought Ron Tyson left at some point in the late 90's? I could be wrong...or have him mistaken for somebody else.
