His parents passed when he was young and he was raised by his mother’s sister, Betty. Richard met the love of his life, Karen Toman, when they were in sixth grade.

He started his career as a window glazer and later on found work at Schuh Tree Expert where he eventually purchased the company. He also was employed with Skid & Pallet Mill in Appleton. Richard was an active member of Twin City Rod & Gun Club and if giving the opportunity he would have shot targets every day. He was known for his ability to craft and build just about anything.
