He had experienced some complications from a routine procedure the week before. Richard was born in Toledo, Ohio on October 28, 1927, to Beryl and Verga Tussing. Sometime during his childhood he had picked up the nickname Ezekiel, and as he got older it was shortened to Zeke which stuck with him throughout the rest of his life. Richard was a graduate of DeVilbiss High School of the class of 1945. He attended the University of Toledo for a short period of time and eventually earned an associate degree form Davis Business Junior College.He started working for A. O. Smith and then later went to work for Libbey Owens Ford where he met his lifelong girlfriend Jeanne Keogh but never married. After being laid off from Libbey Owens Ford, he started working at Davis Business Junior College now known as Davis College. In 1970, he went into Business with James Worley and opened a computer processing center called Data Service Center. He continued in the business until he retired in 1992. After being retired for about one year, he came back to work at Data Service Center for almost another 20 years (2011) until he had to truly retire after having some minor surgery. Richard loved all sports. He was an avid basketball player, but he also enjoyed bowling and bowled for several years in a league with the American Bowling Congress. Richard had a great sense of humor, was very intelligent, and was very generous. He could get along with anyone and was never critical of others. Richard’s older brother Robert Tussing is the only surviving member of his immediate family. He was preceded in death by his parents Beryl and Verga (La Gro) Tussing, his oldest brother Donald Tussing, his only sister Dolores (Tussing) Risk, and his lifelong girlfriend Jeanne Keogh.
