Richard Joseph Hussar
Richard Joseph Hussar Richard Joseph Hussar died on June 8, peacefully and at his home in Palm Springs, from complications related to cancer. He was 79. He was born on October 25, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Elaine Griffiths and Lester Hussar. After attending junior college for one year, where he served as president of the local Mu Omega Alpha chapter, Richard joined the U.S. Army. During his three years of military service as a Public Information Officer, he wrote special interest stories for the 9th Infantry Division's "Bayonet," where he developed an interest in writing—a pursuit he resumed late in life. After his service, Richard worked for IBM and the United States Post Office before relocating to San Francisco. Richard and his partner Alvin, of 41 years, owned and managed Bogart's, a men's wear retail shop in Mill Valley for 10 years. Richard then became a private home care service attendant for HIV/AIDS patients and a volunteer for second-graders in San Francisco public schools. Richard and Alvin relocated to Palm Springs in 2002, where Richard was an active volunteer in the community at the Palm Springs Art Museum and the Mizell Senior Center. Richard is survived by his partner Alvin; his brother, Glenn Hussar; beloved daughters, Kathy Hussar Biesemeyer and Laura Hussar Cooper; three grandchildren, Samantha Proctor Biehler, K.C. Proctor and Destinee Kane Biesemeyer; two great-grandchildren, Nora Jane Biehler and Bracy Conrad Biehler; and his nephew, David Hussar. Donations in Richard's name can be made to Pacifica Senior Living, the Mizell Senior Center in Palm Springs, the Palm Springs Art Museum and the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.
