He grew up in Belleville and upon graduation from High School started college at Blackburn College. He enlisted in the Navy during WWII where he served on several LSTs in the Pacific. Following the war he resumed his higher education at the University of Illinois, graduating with a degree in chemistry. After leaving school he was employed by Sinclair Oil Company in Chicago in their research department where he met his wife to be, Marie Anette Flack. The Couple returned to Belleville and he began work with the Midwest Rubber Reclaiming Company. They began raising their four children in Belleville. While in Belleville he was a member of the Jaycees and volunteered in the administration of the American Red Cross. He also attended night school at St. Louis University and obtained an MBA. He later taught night school classes in business administration at both St. Louis University and Bellarmine College in Louisville. In 1967 the family moved to Louisville, KY where Richard was employed by Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company in their Research Department. He later left B&W and took the position of Director of Health Sciences Labs at the University of Louisville Medical School. After a reorganization at the school he left to work in the administration of the Archdiocese of Louisville, from where he retired in 1988. As the Catholic representative he sat on a local interfaith council in Louisville. He continued being active in the Red Cross in Louisville and at one time was head of Disaster Services. Upon retirement Dick and Anette enjoyed traveling all over the U.S. and playing pickle ball. He was on a planning board in the early days of E.P.

He is survived by his wife of 72 years as well as four children, William and his spouse Lorraine of Houston, TX, Janice of Vancouver, WA, Paul of Boulder, CO, and Judith of Houston, TX. He is also survived by eight grandchildren, Ryan, Scott and Nicholas Zogg of Houston, TX, Megan Downey of Washington D C., Caitlin Mills of London, England, Austin Mills of Houston, TX, Jake Leggett of Austin, TX and Jesse Leggett of Vancouver WA. He is also survived by eight great grandchildren, Zoey, Fielding, Walter, Charlotte, Jackie, Declan and Connor Zogg and Chloe Downey. Richard and Anette are members of St. Albert the Great Parish in the St. Matthews area. The family would like to thank all of the many health care workers and caregivers who worked tirelessly to care for him even through this difficult time.
