I worked with Rich when he held a temporary position at a manufacturing company in Bloomfield CT in the early 1980s. He was instrumental in me rethinking my life. Eventually I left and went to university and retired as a Partner of one of the worlds largest privately held investment advisor. I frequently reflect on our conversations from the time. I drove my his home in Wethersfield recently, and thought I'd search for him and sadly came across this. May he rest in peace.

It was with sorrow that I learned today of Rick Leggio's passing. I, like many others, tried to find him over the years, and could not. We met at SMU while he was finishing his MBA, and he hired me into Search Management Services after that. He loved that house on Reiger, and I can't believe how long ago it was that he was pushing my son's baby stroller at the Farmers' Market. My condolences to the family.

Hello, I knew your brother and uncle. He was a very nice person, had a beautiful home and was very nice to me. I have just seen this, his passing, and I am sad. We dated for a time, a very kind person. I will miss him and have a sad place in my heart for his passing. I don't know the circumstances of his passing, but i hope he was at peace. It's almost a year and I'm sorry for the delay in my condolences, God bless Rick and his family. David Burke

Rick was a very smart, funny, charismatic man. I only actually spent a total of a few days with him over a span of years; back when he was with Search Resource Management, playing tennis once in Virginia, and having brunch in DC one time several years ago when he was passing through. I lost track of him as many did, and only discovered his passing this month in searching for him. I extend my sincere condolences to his family. He was a bright light, a passionate and caring person, and someone who will be greatly missed. It was my privilege to know him, share some brief moments together, and enjoy his friendship and wry wit. Rest in peace my friend.

I lived in the room next to Rich in Eclectic (Wesleyan). We had many late nights, and interesting conversations. And oh my lord did he ever make me laugh! I'm so sad to read this news, so late in the game. My deepest condolences.

Rick, after searching off and on for the past three years and finding nothing, you can imagine my dismay and sorrow when I found your obituary, today. This is not the news I longed for, and it's almost hard to believe. But alas, I accept the reality, as I struggle to recall the last time we parted ways. Yes, it was a nice big hug you gave me as you told me to take care in that deep voice. That's been several years ago, and I and others have wondered where life led you. It remains a mystery. I just hope you continued bringing happiness to others as you did here in Dallas. We were missing you, and now we will miss you forever. Our condolences to your family and to those close to you.
Truly, Chris Leeds and your many friends in Dallas

The Adil family wishes to express our profound sadness and condolence on the loss of Rich. I enjoyed our brief friendship while Mrs Leggio was our neighbor on Ridge Rd, reconnecting after Rich and brother Tom were childhood friends.
