In 1958 he met and married his beautiful wife Lue. They settled in Mountain View where they raised their two children Rick and Lisa.
Richard worked in the aerospace industry as an aeronautical engineer. He traveled the globe working on communication satellites. Richard was an avid snow skier and was always the last skier off the hill when the lifts closed. He was very handy with the tool box and was able to fix anything. He also spent many hours working on all our cars.
In 2002 Lue and Richard moved to Napa to be closer to their children and grandchildren. He often picked up grandsons Bryan and Cody from school and took them out for afternoon treats. Richard was happy when his third grandchild Gabriel was born. Gabriel loved his Papa.
