For many years Richard worked for Gilbert Realty as an apartment condo manager. More recently he drove a special-needs van for Christianson Bus Company in Billerica.

Richard loved life, he loved spending time with family and friends, he was always the life of the party with his infectious laugh. Some of his happiest memories were his vacations with his wife, his days at their camp in NH, and the many years he played Santa for the children. He lived a great life. If you ever met him, you’d never forget him! He was a loyal, devoted, kind, loving and fun husband, son, brother, Uncle and friend. He will be missed dearly by all who knew him.
