Loving the gift of gab and a giving man, Rich will be missed by his family and friends, especially Bud Labas. After working for 34 years at LTV Steel, he continued his working career at Pro Met Steel in Chicago for over 12 years. After many years of traveling and camping out West, Rich finally settled in one spot, Rocky Fork Lake where he enjoyed sharing his cottage with his family and friends. Whether it was buying steel or telling campfire stories, Rich jokingly brought laughter to every encounter.
