Richard was lost on November 20, 1945 when his aircraft collided with another near NAS Chincoteague, Virginia. (Information from February 1946 issue of Shipmate.)
Richard earned his wings at Pensacola during 1943-1944. He had previously served in the fleet during the invasion of Northern Africa as well as in the Pacific.
He appears to have been the first (acting) commanding officer of Torpedo Squadron (VT) 75 in June, 1945.
