Monsignor Richard was the founding pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in New Iberia. He served in various leadership positions during almost 65 years of service in the Diocese of Lafayette. He devoted much time to performing works of charity to help the needy, especially to the poor in Haiti. He had many loves in his life, from his friends at Red's to those met at his camp, traveling or playing tennis. His real love was the people from all walks of life that he encountered during his long and happy journey.
He requested that a simple poem be read at his funeral. The poem is titled "To Those I Love" by Isla P. Richardson. The concluding lines read: "You were so good to me! There are so many things I wanted still, To do-so many things to say to you... Remember that I did not fear.. It was Just leaving you that was so hard to face... We cannot see Beyond... But this I know I loved you so- 'twas heaven here with you!"
