Please know that Rich and the entire Reotutar family are in our thoughts and prayers. Growing up in the same neighborhood and attending Our Lady of the Wayside and St. Viator I remember Rich very well. He always seemed to have an upbeat attitude and positive outlook. Rich was a great guy - so sorry for your loss.

My condolences to the Reotutar family. I went to school with Reo at Wayside from 1st - 8th grade and have many fond memories of those years. I was saddened to hear of his sudden and unexpected passing. My prayers are with all of you.

Condolences to the entire Reotutar family. I met Richie in Southern Illinois where we both attended school. He was and always will be that special friend who will never be forgotten. Gentle and warm, I never knew him to be anything but happy. He regaled to me once that his mother told him that no matter where he goes, no matter what he did and no matter his lot in life, he would always be Rich. Yes my friend, that you were!! We were lucky to have him, even if it was for a short time.

Ana, Brooke, Riley, Ava, the entire Reotutar family, and my dear friend Bob,
My heart goes out to all of you at this time.
All the Thompsons have you in their thoughts and prayers. Richie always had a sincere hello and big smile for all of Bobbie's friends whether at the Reo house, at school, the grocery store or out & about.
My lasting memory of him will always be the pure joy and contentment he had when on the drums in the Reo basement. He was in Heaven.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
