He was very active in many activities with the Humarock Beach Improvement Association and the South Shore Humarock Civic Association.  Richard thoroughly enjoyed participating in many road races, medaling in many, as an avid runner to support many charities and organizations.  He loved everybody he met and knew over his life, and took a special interest in everyone he knew.
