Richard enjoyed playing softball with various leagues including the Meija and 70+ Makule Softball Leagues at Kawananakoa Playground well into his early 70s, traveling to Japan and going to Las Vegas several times a year with his wife, Kay, during their retirement. He also loved talking story with family and friends.
Richard is survived by his beloved wife Kay, son Byron, daughters Cindy (Gregory) Takeda and Deborah (Garrett) Wada, and grandson. Private services were held and Richard was laid to rest at the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery in Kaneohe.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
