After graduation he moved to Virginia and began a career in computer programming. Richard worked for various programming contractors before he retired in 2013.
A friend wrote of Richard “Dick was a truly one of a kind. A mathematician with a brilliant mind. You’d better be well prepared to debate Dick. He was profoundly insightful. Quick witted. Most of all Dick was a profoundly wonderful person with a way about him that was entirely his own. Spend time with Dick and your day was brightened, filled with laughter and provocation. Dick is irreplaceable.”
Richard was preceded in death by his father Ronald Sr. and his mother Marjean, his brother Ronald Jr and his sister Karen. He is survived by his sister Michelle Hoffman from Soldotna, Alaska, his nephew Eric Drumm from Pueblo, Colorado and many wonderful, caring friends from all over the country.
Due to Covid a funeral will not be held at this time. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
