He loved photography, scuba diving, squash, motorcycles & Judo.

One of Richard’s greatest loves was investing in the stock market (a shared passion with his parents), in addition to computer programming & technology.
Richard was a kind, giving, & quiet soul who gave the best advice to those he loved. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, love of food, sense of adventure, quick wit and to teach and inspire everyone around him to continue learning.
