Not sure what to say?

I haven't been able to make practices or jobs in recent years due to work schedule so I've lost touch with the Hobo Band members. We just heard about Rich's passing yesterday. We would have been there to pay our respects if we had known about his passing sooner. We will always remember his great business manager skills and the great trips we had thanks to him. Our sympathy to Connie and his family.

I am deeply shocked and saddened to hear of Rich's passing. He had a very sharp wit that I will miss. You always knew where he stood on any issue.

Rich was many things to many people with the one constant being Rich was a friend to all. He was a man that was honest, good hearted, and always very positive, even in the worst of times. I learned many lessons about life from Rich and will miss him dearly. The one comfort I have is sharing stories about Rich, especially with fellow Hobos. Rich will be with us always in our hearts. I will miss my friend.

You will be missed with all the kind words to my daughter Donna. She enjoyed talking to you in person and on the phone.

The members of the Strasburg RR Club of Marlton New Jersey were sad to hear of Rich's passing. Sunday at our monthly meeting we shared memories of Rich and how he touched our lives. We will miss his quick wit, kind manner and all the help he has given us over the years.
I also am personally greatful for the many lessons given to my son during the summer Hobo Band camps. I will never forget Rich for all the time he spent working with Andrew during his Jr high years.

Rich and I were friends since 1951.
During the past few years, we talked about those days, and all the things we did together. Trips to Niagara Falls and Expo 67; 11 World Series games and 3 All-Star games;
and discussions about everything. I will miss him greatly.

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Rich. I've been involved with the Hobo's for more than 30 years. For much of the time, I recall Rich's passion for playing well in parades, securing jobs for the band, and welcoming new members. Rich was friendly and sincere. His presence will be missed.
