Richard was born on August 19, 1939 in Madison, IN the son of the late Paul J. and Anna-Laura (Buchanan) Peddie. On his 14th birthday, Richard went to the Ohio Theater in Madison where he first met Toi Lowry. They married six years later on May 29, 1959.
Richard’s many interests included woodworking, hunting, boating, fishing, and he could hardly wait until his next tee time.
