BLUE--Richard, September 18, 1946 - May 16, 2009. Beloved husband to Amanda and wonderful father to Kathleen, Rich was a remarkable human being, loved by all. A great contributor to the music world, Rich had early success as a member of the Association (as Ted Bluechel Jr.) and progressed to write many great songs. In later years he entered the world of finance and joined the Corporate Bank at Chase Manhattan, where he met Amanda. After their marriage in 1981, they moved to Burlingame and established their home. In the mid 1990s, Rich retired from the business world and devoted himself to raising his daughter, Katie, a role which he considered the greatest achievement of his life. In 1998, Rich and his family moved to London, England, where they spent ten interesting years before returning home to Burlingame in 2008. He will be greatly missed by his wide circle of friends and family.
