I have many fond memories of Rich from duck seasons and neighborhood visits. I'll especially miss him never calling me Gary. It was always just "Gnu".
My condolences to all his family. So long my friend. You'll be missed by many.

You were by no doubt the anchor of our club in the hay days of the duck club. Your energy and help during those years made our duck club the envy. Your dedication and the dedication to your family will never be forgotten.

Rich was one of my first bosses at PG&E, and one of my favorites. I learned a lot from him. I was a young man, newly married, and with a young child. Rich showed me the ropes. Sadly, I fell out of touch with Rich after I left the SF Division in 1989.

My sincere condolences to Richs family. I will keep you in my prayers.

Richard was a great man and we were fortunate to know him and spend time with him. We met Richard as adolescents and he always treated us and our children like family. We will never forget his generosity and his witty sense of humor, and especially his genuine love for his family and friends. Its not goodbye - its till we meet again
