Richard G Kirkpatrick (1918 - 2000)

A biography has been created for Richard Garnholz Kirkpatrick. He was the son of Raymond Kirkpatrick and May Belle Kemps. He was born in Oakdale, Illinois and lived most of his adult life in Waukegan, Illinois. I spoke to him in October of 1987 and some of this biography comes from that recorded conversation. For additional details of his life, see biography.
