In 1962, he married the love of his life, Lucy Russell Clark, and they have spent 55 wonderful years together. He served as Justice of the Peace Judge for Calhoun County, and he retired after serving as Maintenance Manager with Oakwood Apartments in Calhoun City. Richard also served his community by being a volunteer fireman for Calhoun City Fire Department for over 35 years. He was also an EMR responder for many years. He enjoyed spending time with his family, and loved to be outdoors either hunting or fishing. Richard was loved and highly respected by his community, but to his friends and family, he was larger than life, and his memory will be cherished forever in their hearts.
