Being in Florida, I just got word of Richie's passing today. Our friendship goes back many years, from Maclay Elementary School to our days attending
Bloom U. A few months ago, Richie and I had a pleasant day fishing together on Penn's Creek. He will be missed. My condolences go out to the entire family.

I am fortunate to have known Rich, as a neighbor and childhood friend in the 1950's. His passing is difficult to believe and accept. My sympathy to Rich's sister, Luann, and his wife and family. I'm sure Rich left all of you with many wonderful memories to cherish.
