"Grandpa Bigwheels is a busy man!"
Richard, or Grandpa Bigwheels (as his two grandchildren like to call him) is a busy man: he is a father, a grandfather and works two jobs.
When Richard is not busy working as a Marketing Consultant at Mobility Plus Wheelchairs or a furniture sales consultant, he likes to play wheelchair tennis, as a social outlet and to keep fit. Some other things he enjoys are fishing charters, film, reading and music.
Richard has flown to Darwin and is currently planning a trip to Europe.
Richard uses a manual wheelchair and drives a hatchback modified with hand controls. He lives alone at home, which has modified kitchen benches and bathroom.
Richard is living with T10 complete spinal cord injury for the past 17 years.
