He attended elementary school through the eighth grade in St. James and then graduated from Cedar Catholic High School in Hartington. Following high school he started his career as a truck driver. After his brother James’ sudden death he took the family farm over full time. He married Mary Rose Moser on September 11, 1971 in Bow Valley, Nebraska, where they enjoyed 51 years of marriage until her passing.

Richard and Mary Rose were the proud parents of five children – Brian, Dennis, Doug, Eric, and Amy. Richard was a member of Holy Family, after the closing of St. Phillips and James Catholic Church. He and Mary Rose enjoyed bowling, cards, and bible study. Richard loved playing and watching baseball. Horseshoes was also a favorite pastime. Family time and working on the farm was always cherished by Richard and Mary Rose. Everyone enjoyed his sense of humor and his smile.
