Born May 9th, 1942 in Norwalk, Connecticut, Son of the late Joseph and Elizabeth (Giordano) Kotulsky, Richard has always had a huge love of sports, and played semi pro Baseball until an injury sidelined him. He then decided he wanted to become a Hairdresser. He worked at Smart Set Beauty Salon in Norwalk, CT, then after moving to Port Charlotte, Florida in 1987, he purchased BeautyLand Beauty Salon in North Port, Florida where he remained for 25 years. Richard loved the New York Giants and New York Yankees and when he lived in Connecticut, he could be found at all the home games and at training camps, where he became such friends with players from both teams.
