As a contractor, land developer, and real estate broker, he truly encompassed what it means to be a Renaissance Man. Richard always maintained a painfully optimistic attitude about life and love. Never one to let sadness reign, Richard was the man to put a smile on your face and remind you how life can only get better if you let it.
