Dick Richards, owner of the former Red Carpet chain of bowling centers that dominated the Milwaukee bowling marketplace during the 1970s and into the '80s, has died.
Richards was a strong promoter in the pre-social media era, as Red Carpet billboards could be viewed throughout Beer City, particularly at league sign-up team. Under Richards' leadership, Red Carpet also was a regular host of the PBA Tour.
Richards' death was reported to BJI by one of his former center managers, Dennis Scott. We'll have more on Richards' legacy in the November issue of BJI.
