Richard was a man that worked with his hands and learned different trades over the years, and he could fix and build anything. Beginning as a flooring and tile installer, to co-owning a body shop, then finally into construction. He took great pride in his work; he was a perfectionist. He was the happiest prior to retiring remodeling and building homes for families to make memories in. One of his finest achievements was in 2006 he built an elegant home for himself and his wife in Raymond NH.
Retirement eventually lead him and his wife to Inverness Florida where he enjoyed their pool, walks at Cooter Pond and Wallace Brook Park and yes, remodeling their retirement home and working in the yard. His favorite times were always those that was spent with his family and friends. Richard will be missed by so many people whose life he has touched.
When family and friends were asked if they only had one word to describe him, their responses were: loving, strong, amazing, resilient, talented, devoted, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
His celebration of life will be held for family and friends and will take place at a date to be announced later, in New Hampshire where he spent most of his life.
