Richard attended Ripley High School and Oklahoma State University. He worked as a Machinist; Welder Mechanic. He was a member of the Church of Christ.
Rick went from a young drag racer to his love of muscle cars and his close connection to Ford Racing to becoming “Mr. Ford” expert.

He was the subject of many articles published in several national and international magazines. He could fix anything from any huge corporation to individual farmers. His best quote was “if I can’t fix it, I’ll make it so nobody can fix it”.
