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 a part of the Ford Racing Team, a member of the NHRA, and the national network of drag racers. He had a huge network and many considered him to be their best friend. 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”.
He is preceded in death by his father.
