Richard grew up in St. Ann, Missouri, and graduated from Ritenour High School in 1955. He was a bricklayer by trade and went to trade school right out of high school. He was a 50+ year Gold Card Member with Union Local #1. Richard was drafted to the United States Army in 1961 and was an airplane Mechanic during his service.
Richard was President of the Garden Club. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved nature, planting flowers, fishing, hunting, and trapping. Richard always had animals around, bluebirds were his favorite, and he would even raise chinchillas for show.
Richard loved history and traveling. Lake Louise in Canada was his favorite destination as it was the closest he felt to heaven. His parent’s property off the river “The Clubhouse” was where he found his love of nature and the outdoors. Back home, the Lewis and Clark trails were one of his favorite things to do. Richard was proud to teach his grandchildren about the outdoors, and while driving around town, he would point out “I built that”.
Richard and Lois were always at the children’s sporting events and activities. He was also an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan.
Richard was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
