They lived in Patterson, California for several years before moving to Denver. Richard was a diesel mechanic for many years and a "Shade Tree mechanic", he was always in the garage whether it was 10 or 100 degrees. He was always tinkering with something and always buying, selling or trading cars and was an antique, junk, treasure collector. If you needed anything you could just ask him and if he did not have it he would find it for you or sell it to you. Richard never met a stranger and was loved by so many family and friends.
