Richard grew up in Morton, Illinois and Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Brighton High School. Richard found the love of his life in Jose E.

He will be remembered for his generosity and unique sense of style and amazing sense of humor, though not always appropriate, he had a wickedly funny observation for every occasion.
