Richard served four years in the US Air Force. He lived in Santa Monica for several years, before moving to Lake Tahoe in the early seventies. He always considered Tahoe to be his home. Richard tended bar at the Sahara, Kingsbury Lanes, and The Met. He was a world traveler, and loved to share the stories of his travels with his friends. Richard had a kind and gentle soul, and was generous to a flaw. He was loved by all who knew him, and will be dearly missed.
