Yesterday there were so many beautiful sentiments voiced by a such a diverse group of people who's lives Richard Calone touched. Law folk, skeet shooters & hunters, new friends & old friends so many gathered at a lovely mass and beautiful lunch to honor Rich Calone on his birthday and mark his passing with love and support for Sharon and his 5 children. A true celebration of life.

Mr. Calone was always supportive and engaging and had a sincere happiness in his relationships with his clients and friends. I learned a great deal from him and his passion for history, sport, cars and great people.

Rich's "Cannon Mouth" and swagger may have deceived some, but at his core he was always morally strong, righteous, and absolutely dependable. A better friend you could not abide. We all will miss his principles and character.

Rich gave me opportunities that fueled my practice. I will always remember the first time that I met him, with Mike Schmidt, in Turlock and he gave me a chance. When the Irish meet the Trojans, I will think of him. FIGHT ON my friend - FIGHT ON!

Rich was a truly great friend and mentor to me. I’m forever indebted to him for the opportunities he gave me in business and the many lessons in taxation. He was passionate about going “above and beyond “ for his clients. He taught me to never give up, even when the odds were against us. He was a winner. Most importantly , he was a friend.
