I am not sure how to start this but here goes...my dearest friend rich...u were so loved by lots of people...whether they knew you by working with you or by being part of our family you most definately were loved and cared for...i will miss our lil discussions about life some good and some bad...my hand can now rest from the beatings we used to inflict upon each other to and from work...and i will always say "go cubs go" not cheering for the other team from the south side you know...i am going to miss watching our bears beat up those packers and those cowboys! Go bears go! I will miss u my friend! Rest in peace 🙏🙏

Rich was a good guy for the last two years of his life that I knew him. He became entwined in our crazy fun dysfunctional family about that long ago. He was always smiling and happy to be with us. In our family there is a lot of kids, and he somehow kept them all straight and he always held conversations with every single one of them, from 14 years old, all the way down to the 3 year old. We joke a lot and we knew he belonged in our family when he could take the jokes, and even have comebacks. He was taken way too soon, and it will hurt for the rest of our lives, but I am so glad that I got to know him. And I am beyond proud to call him my family!!! I hope he is at peace, and I only hope and pray that he knows he was loved without a doubt, he has left a hole in all of us. We will miss him, but he will always be with us!!!

I don't exactly know where to being right now. Rich became apart of my crazy family a little over 2 years ago. I didn't know him as well as the rest of my family but it still hits hard knowing he's not longer with us. Having him being apart of my family made things fun. Having him help with the race cars and demo cars was always a fun time. Rich was close with my dad and my brother. I use to work with him and everyday was something different. I have to say he tought me a lot about my job. He will deeply be missed by all of us.... He was a good man and a fun person to be around. We had some good laughs and he lived life to the fullest. He will be missed by many

So I can't say that I knew him as personally as some others, but some how he got stuck being apart of our crazy family! I think I met him about 2 years ago when he became my dads roommate. He was always a calm chill guy that was quiet most of the time. But would have a conversation with anybody that would start one with him. Slowly but surely he started to attend family events including holidays! He was included in Christmas gift exchanges and family traditions like building demo cars. The kids in the family always thought he was the cool 'uncle' because no matter what he always responded to them with enthusiasm! He was a good guy all the way around! He was way to young to leave this earth but may he spread his wings and fly higher than he's ever been! He will be missed!
