When Rich was dispatching for Windsor P.D. I would make it a point to stop by and chat with him. We would talk about life in Mass. I lived in Malden before moving to Vt. Rich loved Piantedosi´s bread and pastries. We agreed the cold cuts in the Boston area were hard to beat. Rich would pay attention to the State Police dispatchers sending Troopers into potentially dangerous calls. Rich would alert and encourage his Windsor´s Officer to back us up. Rich was always looking out for Law Enforcement, he truly cared about our safety. I will miss him!

I had the pleasure of working with Richie at the Town of Brattleboro. Our daughter always enjoyed visiting him and called him `the donut man´. RIP my friend, heaven gained a very big angel.
