Richard and I became lifelong friends after leaving Beloit. We both moved to Boston, and Richard's family in New Hampshire became my family.  Richard worked for the Windsor Button company, as a clerk/bookkeeper and eventually as a buyer. He helped me get a job, through a temporary agency, at IBM, and I spent the rest of my working years in the computer industry.

Richard outlived, by many years, most of his friends who died during the AIDS epidemic. His last ten or so years were in Seattle, where he worked for Adobe Systems. I last saw him there a few months before he died. His home there, as his apartments in Boston, was warm, cheerful, and full of things he liked -- sometimes quirky, lots of handmade stuff, and always in good taste including many hippos. He willed his niece his collection of quirky movies. I have his lemon juicer in the form of a hippo. 

Here is a brief obituary.
