Richard was born in Ashland, Ohio, and spent most of his life as a resident of Ashland.

He started caddying at the Ashland Country Club in 1944.  He picked up the game of golf and has played since he was 11 years of age.  He joined his good friend, John (Jack) Thomas Miller, in sponsoring The Jack Miller/Dick Smail Golf Scholarship. 

The Foundation is a great way to administer the scholarship and assist young golfers who want to continue their education and golf career.
