Richard retired having worked in food science and quality at Dolly Madison, Saps Donuts, and Martha White, and finally as a chemist at Delta First. He loved the outdoors - camping, hunting, archery, flint knapping, and tennis. But his passion was always fly fishing, even making his own flies. He also made silver jewelry in his later years.
