Richard was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He graduated from Culver Military Academy and served in Vietnam as a Ranger in the United States Army. After serving his country he settled down in Colorado where he began working as a bricklayer and later as an electrician. He became a master electrician and started his own business, RG Electric, in 1983. He successfully ran his business for 30 years and in doing so touched the hearts of many of his customers. His humor, smile, and booming laugh will never be forgotten by those who knew him.
