He returned to the states to serve as an Honor Guard in Washington, DC.
Richard married Myrna Neumueller in 1961, and they continued to create loving memories for the next 58 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Tom and Eunice; brothers: Bob and Jim; sister: Joanne; and daughter-in-law: Cindy.
