Richard was active in his church for many years and was one of the founding members of Temple Baptist Church in northern Greensboro, serving as deacon, usher and Sunday School teacher. He most recently was a member of Life Community Church in Jamestown. Richard loved his family greatly. He was always present for family gatherings, and his grandchildren's sporting and school events. He cared deeply for his wife of 58 years always looking out for Dorothy. While a quiet man, he had a witty sense of humor.
