Richard was born June 20, 1927 in Hannibal, Mo., to Marvin and Mamie (Woodrow) Mull. He graduated from Monroe City High School in Monroe City, Mo., at the age of 16, and then enlisted in the United States Navy where he served his country on a submarine tender. On November 8, 1947 he was united in marriage to Virginia Glascock and the two of them would share their lives together for the next 73 years. Richard was the Executive Vice President for Walsworth for over 25 years and his career allowed him to visit many third world countries in which he had opportunities to volunteer. In his spare time Richard loved to hunt, he enjoyed traveling with his family, and he also took great pride in operating his own catfish farm.
