Rocky met Betty Jane Lemke in Milwaukee while on leave from the Navy in 1944. They married August 11, 1946 in Bridgeport, Nebraska. They loved square dancing, traveling together and cruising the open sea on cruise ships. The Heavens gained a gifted square dance caller to keep them all dancing.

He is even further survived by his sister-in-law, Tanya (Paul) Salfer.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Vera, siblings, Darlene (George) and Betty (Mark), and sibling-in-law Warren Lemke.
