Richie was a young boy who bullied Tommy Doyle along with his friends Lonnie and Keith. Out of the three boys, he seemed the meanest as well as the shortest. On Halloween 1978, Keith and his friends were trying to make Tommy believe that the boogeyman was coming after him. As Tommy was trying to leave, Richie tripped Tommy over causing his pumpkin to smash. He then ran off - right into Michael Myers. Michael grabbed the scared boy but let him go. Later that night, Lonnie was dared by Richie to enter the Myers house. However, Sam Loomis happened to be hiding behind tall bushes in an attempt to save the children from any possible danger. He successfully scared off the boys. 
- The following information is only relevant to the 4-6 timeline.
Richie would never forget meeting Myers, and the next 21 years were not kind to him. He never made it out of Haddonfield on a football scholarship. He then attempted to be a realtor, but that failed in the 1980's during the market bust. He had also lost his wife, job and house. On October 31, 1999 Richie decided to burn the Myers house. Once he arrived, he was met by someone whom he thought was Michael Myers. It was in fact Leigh Brackett, who then proceeded to shoot Richie to death. 
- If going by the H20 Timeline, Tommy and Richie are the only characters who encountered Michael on October 31st 1978 and are still alive.
