He was preceded in death by his parents.

Richard is survived by his wife, Tricia Carleton; two daughters, T. Nicole Carleton Santiago of Midwest City and Erica Pelfery and husband Dustin of Oklahoma City; one brother, Roger Carleton and wife Sharon of Colorado Springs, Colo.; sister, Sherry Nelson and husband Kyle of Hays, Kan.; three grandchildren, Ronnie Norwood II, Nakai Santiago and Brock Pelfery; and one grandchild on the way.
