Richard S. Willis was born in Stewartsville, New Jersey, on September 27, 1928, the illigitimate son of Cora Mae Willis (daughter of Phebe A. Beatty and William Willis). He lived in Stewartsville nearly all his life. He and his wife, the former Joyce L. Wertman observed their 59th wedding anniversary on July 16, 2008. Richard was at one time the owner of the Richard Willis Contracting Company. He built the addition to the First Lutheran Church in Stewartsville and also the former Holiday Inn in Pohatcong. Later he was a foreman at the Ingersol Rand Company in Phillipsburg, in the Turbo Division for 20 years, retiring in 1983. In retirement, he worked at his trade as a master carpenter in the Stewartsville Area.
