Kindly accept our warm condolences on Rich’s passing. For several years, we had countless interesting conversations with Rich about so many things. During the warm months, we would sit out on the deck and look forward to seeing him, and Buddy, on one of their many walks around the neighborhood. He sure loved that little dog; it was a beautiful thing to watch, especially as the years wore on. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I’m sure you also have some great memories to comfort you. God Bless, Linda and Greg

Rich was my brother in-law, and also my boss when he owned the moving co. Some of my fondest memories are The Davenport-Bates-Marble water fight, The demolition of my brother Phil's Ford at the RPMs club, The canoe in the pool, Damming the Brooke at Charlie Brown Camp Grounds, And hundreds of jokes around many camp fires.
R.I.P. my friend; till we meet again in Paradise;
