   After the death of his mother Eva Fredrick in 1935 he was adopted by Lillie (Jensen) Fritz and Albert Fritz, his aunt and uncle.  He attended Fontanelle schools.  He worked for his father in the trucking business for a short time.  He was a representative of the Fontanelle Dairy Co. when he was an infant by having his picture on the bottle cap of the old milk bottles – circa 1935-1936.

   Richard was caring and funny with much humor.  He had a smile for everyone and enjoyed company.  He was always happy to receive cards, money, candy, and gum.  He also enjoyed music, dancing, bowling, and was a very talented singer when his sisters were present.  He was a devout Christian and attended church regularly.

   He was preceded in death by his biological parents; adopted parents; and brother, Robert Fredrick.

   He is survived by his three sisters, Betty Brister of California, Raideen Martin of Greenfield, and Mary Ann St. Peter of Scranton, Iowa; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
