I first met Richie in 1973 at the MDC. I was assigned to his crew. He was good friends with my cousin Fred DiNardi. Richie took me under his wing and showed me how to do the job on the road crews. He was a good person and treated everybody the same. Always joking and laughing.

Rest in Peace Richie!

Joann, I'm so sorry for your loss. The little time I spent with Richard at the Hospital was enough to know his personality. He was kind funny and loved his Friendly's shakes and ice cream. We were all sad and devastated about Richard. May God bless you and keep you strong.... Love Yashara (PCA)

The Avalon Kids are so going to miss Rich. He was so kind and always brought a ray of sunshine and his mandatory fist bumps for every child that crossed his path.

We are so sorry for your loss.

National Walk to School Day 2015.  Rich loved these days because he got to see and say hi to all the kids in the neighborhood!
