He was a professor teaching political science at Temple Junior College. He served others well as a longtime employee of Bell County Rehabilitation Center, where he oversaw a facility that specialized in adolescents with physical impairment. He later transitioned and served a community of people experiencing homelessness at Martha's Kitchen and Shelter for the remainder of his working life. Outside of his working career, Richard spent years taking care of his parent's farm and enjoyed being a dedicated Baylor University football, basketball, and baseball fan over the years. 

He was deeply loved and is survived by his daughter, Lisa Schaub and grandson, Caleb of Georgetown.
