Richard proudly served our nation in the United States Marine Corps. He earned his master’s degree from Eastern Illinois University. Zar was best known for the character he played for 15 years at Silver Dollar City. He made life-long friends during those 15 years. Zar enjoyed fishing, floating, horse racing and sports. Mostly, he enjoyed concerts, having seen the Marshall Tucker Band in concert over 50 times. Zar will be missed by all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Richard is survived by his daughter, Kayla Kozer of Cape Fair, Missouri and a brother, Curtis Kozer and wife Sharon of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
