Richard was a kind and gentle person, who gave of himself in the service of others. Often his kind deeds were unnoticed because he did not do them for praise. He loved NASCAR, and was a Jeff Gordon fan. He was an avid Spokane Chiefs fan and a regular in the seats. He was a Yankee fan but after living in LA converted and became a Dodgers fan. He loved spending time outdoors and enjoyed gardening and doing yard work.
Richard was active in his church and with the North Idaho Aids Coalition.
