Richard graduated from Bangor High School, class of 1966. Following graduation, he served with the U.S. Air Force where he learned how to be a boiler fireman. After leaving the service Richard continued to be a boiler fireman, primarily at the University of Maine at Orono. He married Katherine Hilt and settled in Brewer. They celebrated 41 years of marriage last year.
