He was blessed with 9 grandchildren: Bernie (Nicole) Garza, Jr. of San Diego, Mark Anthony Garza of San Jose, Sarah Ann Garza of Manteca, Erica (A.J.)

Richard proudly served in the United States Air Force from 1954-1959. He was a lifelong member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Upon his retirement from the pipeline manufacturing industry, he enjoyed traveling to as many places as he could. He would just get in the car and go! He enjoyed woodworking and had the most amazing “green thumb.” Richard was a huge Manteca Buffalo football fan and could be found cheering on the Buffs with his brothers and other alumni on Friday nights. The highlight of his week would be to attend Sunday Mass and then proceed to Johnny’s for breakfast with his family and friends. He will be missed by his family and friends.
