He was a husband to his wife, Jeanne of fifty-nine years, a father to his five children, and a grandfather to four. He was a great friend and mentor to many. Richard was laid to rest at the Chattanooga National Cemetery in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His family will always be proud of the man that he was.
