Richard served our country for 32 years in active military duty in the United States Marine Corps. He proudly defended our country to include three tours in the Republic of Vietnam. He retired as an officer achieving the rank of Captain.

Richard’s true loves were fishing, hunting, gardening and woodworking. He was exceptionally skilled as he hunted rabbits, dove and deer aboard the Marine Corps Air Station and surrounding hunting clubs.  He spent many hour’s bass fishing in the local creeks and especially King Mackerel and Flounder fishing at Cape Lookout.  His gardens were always amazing with vegetables a plenty. In the later stages of his life, he mastered the skill of woodworking by turning blank pieces of wood on a lathe into beautiful bowls with exceptional finishes.
