He traveled with the Harlem Globe-Trotters as their half-time trampoline show. He enjoyed golf, fishing and traveling, and social gatherings with his friends. He and Jane traveled all over the world, including annual trips to Cabo San Lucas. Richard could fix or build almost anything; he liked finding broken treasures and restoring them.
