He was 70 and had suffered from ALS since 2007. Richard was a physicist, musician, thoroughbred owner, writer, husband and father. A gentle, brilliant and wry personality, Richard was driven by his many interests, chief among them his passion for music and love of horses. The only child of Harold and Aileen Holland, Richard was born and raised in New York City, where he developed his encyclopedic knowledge of music as an usher at Carnegie Hall. He played both clarinet and saxophone and welcomed any opportunity to include others in his act. He was often found play- ing saxophone at Dell fundraisers. Richard graduated from Hunter College and earned a masters degree from Georgetown University. He joined Hughes Aircraft where he worked for over 35 years Richard Holland with wife Mary Ledding during the 2006 Dell Fundraiser at Tara in missile defense systems, traveling the world and eventually relocating to Los Angeles, where he met his wife Mary Ledding and her two daughters, Grace and Hope.
