He was born in Ste Rose Du Lac, Manitoba and grew up in Meadow Portage, Manitoba with his family of ten.  Richard was a hard worker all throughout his life, fishing in Meadow Portage, working forestry in Manitoba both for numerous years.  As well as driving courier for ten years in Winnipeg, Manitoba.   Later in life he worked for the Regina Housing Authority in Saskatchewan.  He was also always doing something and loved working with his hands.
