I met Richard playing handball at GVAC in Goleta. Richard loved Handball and handball players, especially Dell Mora a national champion. Richard was my friend, always kind to me and always had a good joke to tell or kind words to handball players. Richard favorite serve was from the right service line. He would underhand the ball and serve it high and deep into the left-hand deep corner. I visited Richard 2 weeks before he passed with Brian M and I asked him if he needed anything…he wanted a McDonald’s burger, fries, and a shake. He got it.
