Born April 21, 1949, in Cresson Shaft, at home, to John and Mary (Novak) Mishock. Preceded in death by parents, step-mother, Bertha (Blazevich) Mishock, sister, Delores Robine, and numerous uncles. Survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Karen (Sanker); son, Rich, Port St. Lucie, Fla.; daughter, Tanya (Rodney) Yohn, Loretto; and granddaughters, Natashia (Chris), Portage, and Katanna, Loretto.

Richard was an avid musician who loved playing music. He played with the Hallmarks, Untouchables, Melodies, Mario Crocetti, Rattlers, and many other bands.
