On May 3, 1958, Richard married the love of his life, his soul mate, his best friend, Dorothy Ann Ferguson. Together they spent 54 years adoring each other. Their marriage mirrored that of what fairytales are made of. They had the greatest love story of all time. She lived for him, and he for her. Richard was an outgoing jokester who was full of life, always being the life of the party. Being a "Jack of All Trades", he knew something about everything. To know him, was to love him. His kind nature and generous personality showed in how much he cared for his family. His children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren completed his world. The backyard was made into a playground for the grandkids, and great grandkids. Richard was known for his cooking. Making people eat was his specialty.
