Eve and girls, I trained with Rich in Philly and I am so sorry to hear that he has died and that you lost such a special man in your lives. I'm sure he will be missed by so many in your community. My heart goes out to you.

Rich was a junior resident of mine that I remember fondly and I'm so saddened to hear his early passing. My condolences to the family

Richard was one of the BEST. Not only as a Resident but as a Friend. I enjoyed harassing him during his training, but even more at our private dinners with our spouses & discussion at the ACOOG meetings. He was one of a kind and will be missed. My wife and I will remember him and the family in our prayers and at Mass this Sunday.
