Rich, I miss hugging my teddy bear, but you and Seth both had a purpose in life and fulfill it. Thank you for your kindness and doing so much for so many people. I miss both you and son beautiful smile, it will never be the same without you both.
Rich: You were a person of honor. What you did in memory of our son Seth will never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace: you are with two of the best men that I know: Seth & Greg
My heart is so heavy with your loss. You and your work will be carried with me and treasured. Words and thanks will never be enough for your sacrifices.

Sad day, a person of outstanding character the world has lost. I will deeply miss our conversations, as Rich helped me start my recovery with PTSD, and became a friend in the process. I will miss him dearly.
Thank you for your service in so many ways! You will be dearly missed but not forgotten!
Jim, Jana & Megan
I am sorry to hear of Rich,s passing. He was always trying to help me at our meetings , at the Vietnam Vets Memorial in The arts center. Harry Merriman
As rarely as we talked, I knew Rich was there and would be whenever. I will miss him. Best to Rebekah & Ellen.
Richie was a good friend who was also a mentor to me while working the streets in New Brunswick together on fellow Police Depts. He was also responsible for introducing me as a volunteer for the Cop to Cop program. We were going hang out a bit next week, but I just found out he passed. He thoroughly encouraged me to work with Cop 2 Cop. I will follow his advise and will very much miss him.
Let the eternal light always burn for Seth and Richard. Thank you for coming into my life my love. You will always be forever with me.
I just heard the sad news of your passing. It was a privilege meeting you and sharing our stories as Gold Star Family members. Bless you for all the good work you have done especially on behalf of your son Seth with the GI GO Fund and your counseling work for Vets. Way to go and on behalf of the Marciante Family we'll miss you. Rest in peace sir.
Richie was a good man that always cared about others, especially his fellow vets. Richie was a person that always gave back to his community without a second thought. A true man of honor. R.I.P Richie, you will be missed.
Richie, Thanks for all your help and concern, and for Shadow. The uniquely honest and effective way you help people is positively contagious and will be carried forward.
Frank, Jim, JoJo
RIP RICHARD...A GOOD MAN WHO LEFT US TOO EARLY
Just speaking to you last Thursday it comes as a complete shock. Love you brother Richie, a big man with a bigger heart.And I know you will be looking down and still watching over us.
Unfortunately we've lost a good friend and comrade. Rich was always there to help and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace and as always Welcome Home!
RIP my brother. You are in a better place with very good people.
Thanks for all your support with our talks and I will miss you at the meetings in Holmdel (all the vets thank you)
Rich was a man that cared more for others than for himself. Truly selfless. He will be sorely missed. Sgt. Bob Milder.
I can't believe you are gone! Over the years you have been a great help to me. Being both a Vet. and a cop, we had a special bond. Thank you for everything you have done for me! Rest in Eternal Peace Brother!
RIP Richie!! It was a pleasure knowing and working with you on NBPD. Phil and Carolyn Renfro
Rich was a pleasure to work with an genuine nice guy who loved his family and helping veterans...Lynn Duane (NJ Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, Holmdel, NJ)
Farewell brother in law. Please give Seth a huge hug for me. May you rest in peace.
Rich loves all types of people and loves to talk. He did so much good all around.
I will truly miss him.
Rich joined a group of old friends for lunch several times a year. Those luncheons will never be the same again without his presence and without his unique wit. We will miss him.
I shall miss you greatly! You were like my 2nd Dad & Mentor to me.
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
RIP Rich. I will forever be there for Rebekah and Seth. Watch over them <3
Richie, Seth would be proud of all you've done in service to others. You, too, will not be forgotten.
