The Carpenter’s


We all know the sad story of Karen Carpenter’s loosing battle with anorexia. I loved their ten years of recording love songs, Richard at the piano, Karen singing. That all ended in February 1983. I never recall reading what Richard was doing after so many years.

When I started reading to find out more about Richard, I was discouraged. Wikipedia needs citations on some of their information, and so many of the others I couldn’t verify. So I  gleaned some facts that I thought I could rely on.

carpenterRichard Lynn Carpenter is best known now as a music producer. He’s living in California with his wife, Mary. Mary is the adopted child of his mother’s sister. At the time they married, it’s said even Karen objected. They’ve been married for about 31 years and have five children.
