It saddens me greatly that Rich has left us too soon. I was supposed to get married this year, and now when i do, it will not be the same without Rich attending.
I met Rich about 12 years ago when Jon and I started our friendship. Rich always had a wise crack or joke to lighten the mood and make you feel better. He loved Shelley and i saw and felt it whenever i was around them. Aside from the love and happiness he had for his own kids, he absolutely loved his grandchildren. There would be an instant spark in him when he saw them and was around them. Its heartbreaking that he won't be around to see Jon's family grow up, and I can't fathom how he and Shelley must feel.
I will always remember him as the jovial guy he was.

We were so heartbroken to hear about Rich. I (Linda) knew Rich since I was 10. He was friends with my older siblings. Years later my husband worked with Rich and for 5 years of our married life, Rich was our neighbor.
He was such a great guy and so much fun to be around. Please know we are praying for all of you. I know he will be deeply missed! We moved to Texas 10 years ago so its been years since weve seen Rich, but he was such an important part of our lives for years. He will always be in our hearts.
