Richard is also survived by his grandchildren; Elizabeth Beaulieu, Nicholas Beaulieu, Emily Beaulieu (Steve Cove), Savannah Marciezyk, Julia Marciezyk-Holcomb, William Holcomb, Nina Jones, Hailey Jones, Tucker Jones, Jacob Evans, Chase Cove, Hunter Cove, and Grayson Cove. He leaves behind a large family, including his siblings; Sharon Dimmick, Thomas Holcomb, Kathleen Johnson, Mary Keaton, Henry Holcomb III, William Holcomb, Lisa Taylor, Gayle Max, Sheila Shaw, Doug McVey, Charlene McVey, Carol Redfern, and John Collier Jr.; his stepmother-in-law Margaret Baker, sister-in-law Nancy Poland, brother-in-law Robin Baker, stepbrother-in-law Jeff Stanescki, and many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews, and wonderful friends.

Richard attended school in Granby, CT, and Merritt Island, FL. He enlisted in the United States Navy for four years during the VietNam War, and served as an aerographer’s mate on the USS Providence, flagship of the 7th Fleet, under Admiral Thomas Moorer. Richard held a deep love for his country throughout his lifetime. He served as the commander of the American Legion Shannon-Shattuck Post 182 in Granby, CT, in the late 1970’s.
