Richard W. Requard Retired carpenter

November 25, 1990

Services for Richard W. Requard, a retired postal worker and carpenter, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Joppa Road Baptist Church, 2413 E. Joppa Road.

Mr. Requard died Friday after a long illness at his home in Parkville. He was 72.

Mr. Requard spent much of his life working as a carpenter for his uncle's firm, the former Requard Building Co., now Thomas J. Requard Rentals, in Dundalk. Mr. Requard also managed a meat market after serving in the Army in Europe during World War II.

For several years he sorted mail at Baltimore's main post office, retiring at age 65. He was then employed as an armored car driver, delivering food stamps for the government.

In later years Mr. Requard was an avid fan of the Baltimore Orioles.

His survivors include his wife, the former Mary Bullock; two brothers, Louis T. Requard of Baltimore and Charles J. Requard of Washington; and two sisters, Elizabeth C. Requard Miner of Towson and Joan A. Requard Puma of Kintnersville, Pa.

The family suggested memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society in Mr. Requard's name.
