Richard was a lifelong, long haul trucker who truly enjoyed seeing the country and running the open road. He will be sadly missed by his fiance, Mary J.

Anyone that knew Richard knew him for his fun, witty, hardworking, outgoing, goofy personality. He enjoyed tinkering on things around the house, hunting and fishing, he also really enjoyed music. Richard was a proud U.S. Veteran having served in the marines for many years. He was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers Fan.

He will be remembered for always having a fresh pot of coffee on and a cup in his hand!
