Richard was born on March 17, 1952 the son of Eino and Dorothy (Marten) Kangas in Phillips. During Richard's working years, he worked for local farmers as a farm laborer, at the Occupational Development Center and most recently at the Clark County Health Care Center.

Richard was friendly and kind, gentle, and generous with a heart of gold. He valued friendships and had a love for animals just like his mother. Richard's favorite past times were doing latch hook, coloring, eating out, going to the movies, taking short trips or spending a day at the casino. Most of all he loved to be around his friends and sisters, while beating you at a game of checkers.

Richard is survived by his two sisters: Shirley (David) Williams of Medford and Marilyn (Duane) Meyers of Colby; his uncle and aunt, Francis and Lillie Belle Marten of Pittsville; nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, David.
