He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
Richard was preceded in death by his mother, Elizabeth Walker.
He was a lover of life, an adventurer and traveler, a reader of the classics, and a follower of Christ. His children were his pride and joy and marrying the love of his life was one of his proudest moments. His favorite pastime was drinking coffee on his back porch and admiring God’s creation. The one thing Richard wanted to make sure we all knew was he had a wonderful life filled with love and joy with no regrets.
