Richard was an honored veteran of the United States Navy having served just be-fore the Korean War. He worked as a millwright for Kodak Co. in Rochester, NY, and retired with 25 years of service. He enjoyed tinkering in his garage, repairing equipment, appli-ances, and vehicles for fam-ily and friends. As an out-door enthusiast he enjoyed hunting and fishing in his free time.
