Richard entered the automobile business in 1977 and over the course of his 42-year career enjoyed friendships with many customers and co-workers. He was affiliated with Townsend Nissan in most recent years.

Richard was a loving and devoted husband and dad who greatly valued time spent with his family. He especially enjoyed trips to the beach with his extended family. Richard was an avid tennis player and spent many days in the 1960s learning the game on the grass courts at The Racquet Club. One of his greatest joys was sharing his love of the game with Caroline and Matt and being with them on the courts.

He was a member of First United Methodist Church of Tuscaloosa, past member of the Kiwanis Club and served on the tennis committee at Indian Hills Country Club.
