Richard was inducted in the U.S. Army in 1946 and was honorably discharged in 1947. On June 5, 1953, he married Betty Hilderbrand Snell, and with this marriage, he also took her two children to raise and love as his own. To this union were born two daughters, Sharon Ashlock and Connie Thomas. The family moved to Oklahoma in 1959 where Richard worked in the oil field for 40 years.

He was active in the Moose Lodge and helped with the Special Olympics for 10 years. Richard enjoyed racing stock cars and dune buggy activities. He was baptized in the Baptist Church at the age of 11.

His oldest daughter, Linda Snell, went to her heavenly home in 1967, and his youngest daughter, Connie Thomas, left this world in 1991. He was also preceded in death by three brothers, Jim, David and Billy, and three sisters, Helen, Rose Marie and Betty.

Richard is survived by his wife, Betty Eastin, of the home; his daughter and her husband, Sharon and Vernon Ashlock, of Woodward; his son Jerry Snell, of Woodward; three brothers, Joe Eastin and his wife, Lois of Texas; Fred Eastin of Missouri; and Tome Eastin of Illinois; a sister, Maxine Steele, of Illinois; 10 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; several other relatives and a host of friends.

The family requests that memorials be given to the Woodward Hospice or the American Cancer Society.
