During the Vietnam Conflict, Richard served in the United States Army, from which he was honorably discharged. Richard was an engineer, a devoted Catholic, and the occasional Jedi Knight. A veteran who never spoke of his time in Vietnam, he nevertheless came home more committed to peace in the manner of all true warriors. The world was made better by his living. He will be missed.
