I have many fond memories of Richard in Ocean City as we grew up together. I am grateful for those memories and I wish Tuula, Jennifer and Catherine will pass on stories of Richard to Jack so his legacy lives on.

Tuula, Jennifer, Catherine, Pat, and Jackson - Our hearts and prayers are with you all. Rich was a bright, interesting, talented man who enriched the lives of all who knew him. We have wonderful memories of our times together in Springfield and through the years since then. We will miss his warmth, smile, and insight. God bless you all in the days ahead. With love, Bob and Ditsie

Tuula, Liz and I were most fortunate to have met both you and Rich during our tour of duty at the Naval Observatory. You welcomed us warmly to the very special group of oceanographers that served at the Observatory. Your friendship and hospitality made our wardroom one we all remember fondly. There are no words to express our sorrow for your loss. Rich meant so much to so many people. His wisdom, calm demeanor and good counsel were sought out by every member of our staff when they needed help. One vivid (or hazy) memory Liz and I have of Rich is the St Patrick's party he used to co-host in the Great Hall. Rich "hands down" made the BEST Irish Coffee we had ever enjoyed!
Tuula, both you and Rich shall forever remain in our prayers. God bless you and your family. Most sincerely, Steve Tomaszeski, Rear Admiral, USN (Ret)

Rich was my best friend, golf buddy, and co-worker for many years. I miss him, but will always have the memories of our and our families times together. It has been quite a ride. Thanks, Rich. Rest in peace. Tuula, Catherine, Jennifer, Pat, Jackson, my sincere condolences. I do know how much this hurts.

We have many memories of Richard as we were growing up. He enjoyed fireworks especially on the 4th of July. He will be missed.

Jen and Pat, we are so sorry for your loss. Jen, your father was an amazing man, and though we only met a couple of times I distinctly remember walking away from those conversations impressed by his stature and all the things he had accomplished. He raised some incredible children and will be missed by all that were lucky enough to have met him. You and your family are in Camille and my prayers.

Rich had a warrior's spirit and was truly a great and accomplished man. His service to his country is greatly appreciated and his steadfast love and commitment to his family will always be remembered. Our condolences to you all during this time of mourning. I'll miss the informative and impassioned discussions we would have when I'd get to see him during overlapping visits. We love you guys!

Such an incredible man... I only had the honor of meeting him once, but I will always remember his warm and caring personality. I have been blessed to have both of his beautiful daughters in my life, and he raised them to be such giving and wonderful ladies. God hold this family in your heart during this difficult time, especially little Jackson.

Rich, you were a mentor so me and so many other Sailors. You hold a special place in my heart, and we wish you peace. Thank you for your wisdom, your wit, and your dedication to country and family.
