Richard received his degree from Cambridge in Civil Engineering and as well as compulsory military service, spent time in the Far East assisting with building projects, before settling in the UK. The last 14 years of his career were spent with the North West Water Authority. Once retired, Richard, Jennifer and their much loved dog could frequently be seen walking the Lakeland Fells with Wainwright in hand. Richard will rejoin his family, resting in peace in Carlisle Cemetery.
