A veteran of the United States Army, Richard honorably served his country. On September 15, 1956 he married the former Gail L.

For a period during the 60’s, Richard was a salesman with the Shepard Paint Company, and at one time, managed the Pin-O-Rama Bowling Alley. He also owned and operated a Window Décor Company. In keeping with his patriotism, he enjoyed the spirit of the American Legion, holding the position of County Commander.

He was also blessed with the love of Carmen Cristallo; and many special friends. 
 
The family is grateful to the doctors, nurses, and staff of Clark North at the St. Luke’s Home, for the loving care they rendered to Richard during his stay.
