A lifelong area resident, Richard was a 1949 graduate of Mont Pleasant High School. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1952 to 1954. For his service, he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal and the United Nations Service Medal.  He was honorably discharged at the rank of Corporal.

Later in his career, he worked with his brother in the vending machine business, and subsequently, took a position in maintenance with the New York State Senate in Albany. He retired from the state in 1994, and was a communicant of St. John the Evangelist Church. His passion was for woodworking and restoration of seemingly well used wooden furniture. He enjoyed remodeling projects, reading and keeping up with current events.
