Richard served in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954 and spent that time in Europe, mainly France. He was happily married to Beverly (Tekippe) until her passing in 1989. Richard was active in the AMVETS and Moose Lodge and focused particularly on the Mooseheart Organization, a home for disadvantaged children. Richard was a diligent worker and loved his family most.
He is survived by his devoted sister, Anne (Volk) Bradford, whom always insured every aspect of his well-being and was his primary advocate, as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Anna; his siblings, Margaret Seer, Michael Volk, John Volk, Barbara Lockbeam, Sebastian Volk, and Delores White.
