I just heard of my Richie passing. I am very deeply saddened by this news. Richie was quite a guy to work with, one of my favorite people! Our Halloween’s were super fantastic, as he would dress up like the rest of us, and some of the comments that came out of him, just had us roaring! You are missed my Richie! May you Rest In Peace, and until we meet again, my friend.

Richard was a wonderful coworker who was rarely flustered and always helpful. His dry sense of humor and timing was a delight.

My condolences to his family and friends.
