I didn't know Richard but I'm his cousin. His mother was my dads sister John Romanchak. It would have been great to know him his life was full and he will be missed by many.

Rich and I went through Catholic grade school and jr. High, and High school. But my first memory of him is when we were in NB hospital at the same time I was in a semi private room with my sister Rosemary and he was in the Children's Ward
right beside our room. Back then you went in the night before your surgery. When my mom left my younger sister cried but I said there are a lot of kids in the other room. I asked Rich to save me the salt and pepper packets from his tray. He did .(smiles) He was our class clown in grade school which made school fun for us. Although he did get in trouble with the nuns. Our first day of Jr. High we said we help each other find our classes. We got lost and if I remember right we were late for every one. Being the St. Joe kids ( as all of us were called) was little intimidating but we eventually made more friends than the 30 we went through grade school with.
Rich you will not be forgotten. May your soul rest in Peace and Karen, may your memories and love for Rich be your comfort and give you joy and Peace.
