After attending high school in Kenosha, Richard joined the US Army and served in the occupational forces in Japan and later in the US Army Reserves.

Richard and Julie moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1990 to revel in the sun and play golf. Richard and Julie were happily married for 58 years until her passing in 2011.
In the fall of 2011 Richard moved back to Kenosha to be closer to family, to reconnect with old friends and make new friends along the way.
Richard was an avid Badger and Packer fan. He enjoyed playing cards, golfing, having coffee with his buddies, game shows and sports on TV. He was quick witted, liked to tell a joke and dine out whenever the opportunity arose.
Richard was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He is survived by his three children, Lynn Rossi (Matthews), Mark Richard Rossi, Carrie Anne Rossi and son-in-law Frank D Matthews. He has four grandchildren, Carrilyn A. Rossi, the late Max E.
