Richard was born March 30, 1959 to the late Richard and Vivian Kennedy in New Mexico. He married his best friend Debbie Cole in 1982. He was a longtime member of Zion Lutheran Church of Abilene. Richard was a very talented singer and participated in the choir. He worked for Coca Cola for many years retiring in 2001.
