Doreen and Rachel -- We both send heartfelt condolences. Rich was a "bigger than life" personality who brought optimism and energy to his many endeavors. He brought the message of hope to hundreds of men through his Wednesday commitments in Auburn. Love, - Dan & Pat Lucas

Dear Doreen and Rachel, I am a family friend of Rich's from Newburgh, N.Y. He was always a strong, kind, young man with a twinkle in his eyes. I am so sorry for your sudden loss but reassured he passed on with love and fulfillment in his life. God Bless Rich and Everyone in his life that he touch.

Doreen - I am terribly saddened by Rich's passing and your loss. He is constantly in my thoughts now. Rich was my oldest and dearest friend since college and like an uncle to my children. Our family will miss him and never forget the impression he made on all of us. I am heartbroken we won't have another decade or two of sports car racing and short ribs and his wonderful stories. I can't describe how much I miss him.

Rest in Peace Nice Person

Doreen, I send my sincerest condolences. Rich was an amazing man that not only consistently went out of his way to help others, he consistently went out of his way to compliment others which is truly an admirable quality that you don't come across often. I had the pleasure of working with Rich for ~ 7 years at CVI and truly appreciated his humor, advice and great conversation. I could go on for hours listing the impact Rich had on me, but I will leave it as I feel truly blessed to have known Rich and will pray God gives you the strength to get through this difficult time.

i knew Richard for many years as a member of the auburn courthouse athletic club. we had a number of brief but pleasant conversations over the yeas. most recently i ran into Richard at the auburn Sav-Mart. we spoke about how long it had been since we had seen each other and inquired into each others' health. Richard seemed to be fine and happy. i was surprised and very saddened to learn about his passing when i read the journal on tuesday. he was a very nice man.

Doreen & Rachel - I am so sorry, I just heard the news about Rich. Rich has been a great friend for many, many years and although geography and life's priorities have limited our time together over the last 15 years or so - I absolutely cherished the conversations we did have periodically. Rich was an absolute inspiration to me and a ray of sunshine in every conversation. He will be missed dearly by all who knew him. My sincerest sympathy in your loss and be assured you both will be in our thoughts and prayers.

He always seemed to have a twinkle in his eye- like some mischief or a prank was afoot. That ear-to-ear smile of his was absolutely infectious. We have so many great dive trip memories of him and we will truly miss him. A great guy.
