Talarico Psy.D., Dr. Richard J.  
Dr. Richard J. Talarico, 65, passed away peacefully, with his wife by his side, on June 1, 2015, at his apartment in New York City. He was born in Erie on April 7, 1950, the son of Sam J. Talarico, of late, and Carmie LaFuria Talarico, of Erie. Rick graduated from Strong Vincent High School in 1968. And, in 1974, he graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a BA in Clinical Pharmacology. He studied psychology at the graduate school of The New School in New York City for one year, then moved to San Francisco, Calif. In 1983, he graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Doctorate in Psychology. The following year, he interned at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Los Angeles, Calif. He met the love of his life in Los Angeles, and on October 18, 1986, wed the remarkable Deidre Balish. They returned to New York City, where Rick started a practice in clinical psychology. Concurrently, he was employed as a clinical psychologist at Saint Vincent Hospital in lower Manhattan. He also served as Director of the hospital's residency program in clinical psychology.

They were inseparable. They celebrated each other at every turn, traveled extensively and frequently entertained friends at their apartment. Though Rick left Erie as a young man, he never left the family. He talked to mom and dad almost every other week and his younger siblings regularly. He often visited, and on each and every Christmas, Uncle Rick and Aunt DeDe showered wide-eyed nieces and nephews with love and gifts galore. Rick was so much in touch with life and the living.
