When Richard first left the 'Feud' in 1985, an executive producer estimated that he had kissed "somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000 women." One of them was Gretchen Johnson, who came on with her family in 1981. They started dating soon after that, and got married in 1991. They had a daughter, and were still married at the time of his death.
