Richard was born May 28, 1934, in Louisville, the son of Gregory and Lena (Karlee) Thompson. He married Stella M. Boggs and they have been married for 54 years. Richard had been retired since 1998 and he and Stella loved to travel. They have been to all four corners of the United States and Canada.
