He honorably served in the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
In 1993, Richard retired as the president of Greenwood Pharmacy and Home Care, Inc.’s corporate office in Sharon. He worked for years at the nine retail pharmacies, mainly at the Hermitage location on East State Street and eventually the many institutional (nursing home) pharmacies in sales.
