Richard worked for Ritter Sanitation for 30 years and during his retirement he which he thoroughly enjoyed he worked as a seasonal employee for the Ortonville Resort at the Lake Shore RV Park for four years.

Richard enjoyed playing cards and the outdoors especially fishing, camping and gardening and canning his harvest. Having a dog around the home was always something Richard enjoyed. Working on the Bednarek family farm was also something he looked forward to. Attending races with his son Kenny in Madison, Montevideo and Alexandria were special times that they shared while hanging out in the pits with all the drivers and crews.
