Richard was born and raised in Roswell, NM and attended Goddard High School. As a young man, Richard proudly served his country in the Army for over four years before being discharged.

Also touching Richard’s life were Lenny and Linda Fresquez, who Richard didn’t just think of as employers, but friends.
A memorial and graveside services were held in Albuquerque, NM on July 31, 2017.
He passed away following a very brief illness and reunited with Christ and his precious daughter Amelia Rose way too soon. He was not prepared, no will and loose ends for his family to struggle with. Let us all learn from this and be prepared.
