A private memorial service will be held in the mountains in Montana for Richard at a future date.

From birth Richard was in a hurry to “grow up” and he was walking by 12 months. He was curious and a challenge to keep up with. At age three, he slept with a baseball and glove. He played hind catcher at age four with the neighborhood boys. Baseball was his passion throughout school, and by Junior High he was into motor bikes, bronc and bull riding, and hunting. He joined the U. S. Marines the day after he graduated high school and he was so very proud to be a Marine. After serving his time in the Marines; Richard, an avid fan of Louis L’Amour westerns, explored and lived in the mountains panning for gold, fur trapping, hunting, camping and fishing his secret spots. In his later years, he settled in Indian Harbor, Granbury, Texas to be near his family.
Richard was preceded in death by his father Carl Anderson of Yuma, AZ, grandparents S.D. and Alice Smith (Green) of Quanah, TX and Jack and Berniece Anderson of Yuma, AZ.
