He attended Grade School and High School in Park Riv- er. After High School he attended the University of North Dakota receiving an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Sci- ence, Literature and Arts for his studies ha history. He spent 2 more years at the University's Law School, receiving his Juris Doctor degree in 1961. In December of 1959 he married Carol Ann Braund, also a graduate of the University of North Dakota with a degree i in Music and Teaching. Richard and Carol celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this past December. He brought her 2 dozen red roses every anniversary. Following law school, he and Carol settled in Stockton, California with their first son, Stuart Richard, where he be- gan his 30 year law career in his first job with the Department of Defense as a civilian attorney. Their second son, Paul William, was born in Stock- ton. After practicing law with the government for 3 yeats, the family moved to Santa Clara Valley, buying a home in Cupertino. In CuPertino, Richard began his first legal work representing technol- ogy companies in "Silicon Valley". He started with Fairchild Inc. as an 'in-house" lawyer. By this time, he had passed the North Dakota and Cal- ifornia Bar Exams. After many successful years at Fairchild and Ameri- can Microsystems Inc., he and 2 lawyer friends opened their own private practice, serving the legal needs of the growing tech community. The firm, initially nmned Skjerven, Morrill and Farrow, was successful and grew quick- ly, adding more lawyers and staffevery year. After outgrowing its first of- rice, the firm moved to new high-rise buildings on Noi'th I st St. in San Jose. As the fima continued to grow, they eventually oPened offices in the Trans- America Pyramid building in San Francisco and in Austin, Texas. With an office in Texas, Richard passed his third Bar Exam for tile State of Texas. Having flown private planes as a teenager with his older brother, William ("Billy") Conrad Skjerven, Jr. of Park River, he again took up flying in his retirement. Richard traveled often to Texas where he hangered his private airplane, a Husky. In 1999, he flew his little Husky from Texas to Park River for the dedication of Park River's WC Skjerven Field, named after his brother. Another one of Richard's passion was his love of cars. He loved to drive, maintain, and restore old sports cars. His collection start- ed with a red Triumph TR4 that he purchased while living in Cupertino. He eventually file TR4 fora 1968 Porsche 912 which he drove back to Park River for a memorable high school reunion in the earlier 70's. During the reunion, a number of his high school classmates picked up the car and carried it up the stairs of the Park River City Hall and placed it on the top landing. Eventually his collection grew to include many different Porsches, Morgans, BMWs and Ferraris. Besides the exotic sports cars, he loved Dodge prod- ucts as his father, Willimn ("Bill") Skjer ,en Sr. was the own- er of the Dodger dealer for yem in Park Riven True to these roots, Richard bought a 1978 Dodge Ramcharger and had it painted Fen'aft red and put Ferrari badges on it. He was often stopped and asked abont that Ferrari truck! Richard was happiest when he was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where he and Carol had a vacation home for 20 years. He loved the Teton Moun- tains for the great powder skiing, fantastic hiking, and canoeing during their summer trips there. The vacation home's yard was often frequented by moose, deer and the occasional bear. The fhmily and grandchildren often enjoyed the vacation home with them. On one occasion, after training for a year, Richard signed up with a climbing service to climb the Grand Tetons. Sadly, due to inclement weather, they were unable to stunmit but Richard did reach the final, highest base camp. Richard mad Carol were fortunate to have traveled extensively. They often traveled to Europe for skiing in Austxia and playing in Paris. One of their travels took them to South America for a ski trip_ "m the Andes moun- tains. They were often seen in Paris for Thanksgiving week as well, stay- ing at their favorite hotel on Isle St. Louis. While the "boy left Park River", Park River never left the boy. He fre- quented Park River for 4th of July celebl,'ations and he always wore his cloth- ing items --his cowboy hat and boots. Even while practicing law, he al- ways wore his cowboy boots with his suits. Richard passed away peacefiflly on .lune 16th, at the El Camino Los Gatos Hospital. His entire immediate family was by his side. He is survived by his wife, Carol Ann, their two children Stuart Richard and Paul William, daughter-in-law's Gordana and Nanette, and his grandchildren Kyle, Alec, Erik, Molly and Wilson.
