Richard retired from Cadillac Motor Company in Detroit where he worked for 30 years. He was a long time parishioner of St. Damian Catholic Church and St. Genevieve-St. Maurice Catholic Church. He loved vacationing with family and his dear wife Jovita. He was a member of the Wise Owl Walker Club and The Travel Club of Livonia. Rich also loved entertaining- whether it was barbequing or just sharing a beer, Richard loved people. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren. He taught his kids the importance of a great hand shake, and secure eye contact. He would greet everyone with a smile and a “how ya’ doin”? He was eternally grateful and thankful to all that helped him. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Mr. Rich was always patient always kind and I’m very grateful even for the short time I was able to be apart of his life. I pray comfort and peace upon his entire family this day and beyond.

I met Jovita and Richard through my Mom, Lorrie Waling. We'd all go to the Livonia Senior Center for the special parties and bingo. Richard was a very nice person.
