Richard began his career as a social worker and ran the Lee County Children's Home and became Director of Human Services of Lee County in the 1990's.

They brought joy to his life.

A secondary service will also be held in New Hampshire at the State of New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, NH at a later date.
