Richard grew up in Millinocket, and was a graduate of Stearns High School. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1949-51. He worked at the Great Northern Paper in Millinocket for 47 years. Richard loved spending time at his camp on South Twin Lake and his home in Millinocket, both of which he built himself. He also loved hunting, and fishing, and will be remembered for his ability and fondness for telling a good story.
