I worked with Richard for many years at Westinghouse. He was delightful, always fun to be around. he was a pace setter and was well liked by all his girls. I think of him fondly and send my deepest condolences to his family.
Rich will be sorely missed, his time with us was too short. I worked with Rich at the Marion and we became great friends over the years. My condolences to his family.
Rich was a great person with a big heart & a big smile to match. My condolences to his family. so sorry for your loss.
Dear Ronnie, Kathy & family, So sorry to hear of Rich’s early departure from this earth. Just some words of comfort: We share your pain and grief, “may you feel God’s healing balm as He extends His sweet relief. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:3. Richie will now be in the BIG orchestra of heaven enjoying the music. Longtime church friends, Rodney, Myrna Scales & family.
Dear Ron, Kathy, Katie and Kari, Mary and Fred and family,
My heart grieve with you knowing that Richie isn’t here with us anymore but I rejoice in the Lord that He is enjoying his reward with the Lord. Words really can’t do justice to say all that a person means to someone when they have lived a life as full as Richie has. I will always remember the little chuckle that he had and the awesome cookies that he made but most of all the beautiful music that He played unto the Lord.. Actually, everything he did, he did with excellence and anything he made was awesome. He had a God given talent to share with others in music and in food. He will be missed in church as well as in your family gatherings but as others have said….we grieve with you and feel the pain. When one in the body suffers, we all suffer. I am thankful for the short time we had on this earth to know him and the good friend that he was to everyone he knew. Your families are in my thoughts and prayers and should you need anything that I can supply…feel free to call me. You are so loved and I will continue to pray for all of you during this time of hurting. With much love, Sharon Joy Farina
I remember Rich from the disco days. He was always friendly and easy to talk with. He will be missed I’m sure. I wish that everyone who knew him would realize that your day of death is more important to our God than the day you were born. I hope this comforts all those who loved him.
RICH will be missed uns r in my thoughts an prayers
