He was a long time member of the Place of Refuge Church, Manteca, Ca (formally known as 1st Assembly of God). Richard loved the thrill of fast cars. His first date with his wife Lois was racing his corvette and the rest was history. They were married for 60 years. He enjoyed watching WWE wrestling and tinkering in his garage. Richard was a social man, he commonly checked on his friends and neighbors and lent a helping hand wherever and whenever was needed.

   Mr. Steglik is preceded in death by his parents, and siblings John Steglik Jr. and Virginia Endsley.
