Richard and Lisa were married in 2003, and they lived in Waco for many years where they enjoyed spending time with their children and grandchildren. In 2013, Richard bought a restaurant in Alvarado, and he and Lisa moved to their current home in Joshua.

Richard enjoyed being a Shriner during his time in Waco, as well as fishing and genealogy. He has always been a history buff and enjoyed collecting antiques. His recent interests included cheering on the Clemson Tigers while they played football and watching the Texas Rangers. His biggest joy in life was spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
