Richard loved his friends and family very dearly. Family meant everything to him. He always made people laugh, feel great about themselves and their accomplishments. After a conversation with Richard, you walked away feeling like you were on top of the world. He had a passion for music, loved playing the guitar and the drums. From the time he was a child, he enjoyed trying new foods and as an adult he was an enthusiastic home chef. Richard especially loved the outdoors, being in nature and camping with friends. An important aspect of his life was discovering the world around him, reading and fostering meaningful conversations.
