As an animal and nature lover you could often find Richard out exploring Belle Isle, aka Felle Isle, or by his fire pit even on rainy nights. In his spare time Richard loved taking his cherished dogs for walks, spending time with family/friends, and being outdoors camped under the stars and moon. Richard’s love for his country was something he did not take lightly. He was one to always place his hand on his heart and sing the national anthem enthusiastically.
Richard wasn’t perfect but loved with his whole heart, gave amazing hugs & would do anything for you if he could. A Son, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, and Friend to many, he will be missed dearly.
