Richard is survived by his children, RaeLynn and Mathew Leyba, Heather Switzer and Richard Aragon; his siblings, Delores Aragon, Juan and Edna Aragon, Lucia Atencio, Priscilla and Jim Armer, Ana and Kenny Trujillo, Mona and Rick Gonzales, Jennette and Gary Mahaffey, Maria and JJ Michael; many nieces and nephews; and close personal friends, Patricia and Marty Trujillo.

He was a very rare gem to all who knew him, and he will be deeply missed.
