Born in Lima, Ohio, he moved to Southern California as an infant, and Richard was raised in Long Beach. As a Wilson High School grad of 1950, he was on the CIF Championship Baseball team. Richard coached several local youth baseball teams in the 1970s. He continued to enjoy playing sports (having played semi-pro baseball for the Hollywood Stars in the 1950s and professional softball for the Long Beach Nitehawks in 1960s) until age 65 when he finally hung up his softball cleats, fulfilling a life time goal. He earned his Bachelors, Masters, Professional Engineering, and his Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering from the Viterbi School of Engineering at University of Southern California. His passions were spending time with family, sports (especially anything USC Trojans, Lakers and Dodgers) reading, and pets. Carole and Richard enjoyed several cruises, trips to Montana, and just spending time together. He enjoyed being a member of the Long Beach Century Club. He was an adjunct professor at CSULB and USC. He started his distinguished career as a Systems Engineer at Douglas Aircraft. Richard was promoted to the drafting department because they needed a guard on their basketball team. He later moved onto Northrop, TRW, Logicon, and retired from The Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo. He supported the guidance system on Apollo 11, worked on the Lunar Excursion Module, established the Strategic Petroleum Reserves, and supported/designed other US Defense Systems. The family will miss the wisdom, love and example of our loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. Please sign the guestbook at or .
