my sincere sympathy. I remember Mr Vittese fondly . I worked for him at Bell Supply in the 1970 and had my wedding at Rickshaw . And Lisa trained me on horse back riding - my favorite horse was 2by4.

My mom, Irene King, had the pleasure of working many years for Mr. Vittese when he owned the Rickshaw Inn. He was so good to her & we all shared many great memories of that wonderful hotel. There were Easter egg hunts out by the pool, BBQ's, parties, lots of celebrities in & out & he always let families of employees share in these wonderful events. I even remember his room when he stayed over...called the Esettiv Suite...his name spelled backwards. He was a special man. My condolences for your loss. Denise King Cogill

Tony Castorino and I both enjoyed our business and friendship relationship with you. Especially when I built my house and the pleasure of your company when you came to my housewarming. I have the warmest thoughts of your support when my daughter, Kathy was in Up With People. God Bless you and your family.
