He lived to be on the water, especially to captain his own boat. Richard loved to attend concerts, watch the Dallas Cowboys, and grill out with his loved ones. He is known for his penchant for self-admiration but also his expansive love for others; Richard came from humble beginnings and used his success in his military career to lift up and counsel others to their full potential. He personified hard work, quick wit, and refined taste. His journey was not without tribulation or injury, and tragically his many invisible wounds took him from us before his time.
