Weck Family,
I was so sorry to hear about Richie's passing. You have my most sincere condolences. Many of us in his Shell family will miss him! I knew Richie for almost 50 years. He was blessed with an outgoing personality, and he shared with all his love for his family - Regina, children and grandchildren. Richie was truly one of my best friends at Shell, and I will miss him. I mourn his death, but hope he is in a special place God has prepared for him.

Richie was my first boss at Shell, when I started in 1985. He was a great boss and I don't remember any negative conversations. He loved to joke around and he was a lot of fun. He loved to brag about how he never wore a coat, no matter how cold or rainy it was. He would just walk fast to get into the building. He was always entertaining to talk to - he was full of great stories! I worked for Richie for 4 years and then I transferred to another group in the department, so I would still bump into him a lot.

I worked for Shell for 30 years and I retired in 2015. When I retired, he let me know about the Shell retiree luncheons that he hosted every 3 months and I enjoyed going to those when I could. Shortly after I retired, I got invited to a small group of Shell retired women in Sugar Land and we would get together for lunches periodically. Then we decided to open up our group to men and women and now it's grown to over 100 people. Richie enjoyed attending our Sugar Land Shell retiree lunches and catching up with everyone and we will definitely miss his smiling face and fun stories. I am so sorry for your loss.

We loved Richie. We called him Richie Rich! We enjoyed playing golf with him. He said he hadn’t golfed for 5 years and then he hits his first tee shot 200 yards down the middle!
We also enjoyed walking with him in the neighborhood and hearing his stories. We will miss him dearly. I have comfort knowing he is in heaven with his beloved wife. We are very sorry for the family’s loss and pray for comfort and peace for you. Love Bob, Patti and Joey

Dear family of Richie. I’m so sorry to hear of Richie’s passing. I met him over 50 yrs ago when Regina invited my boyfriend, at the time and me , to take a trip to upstate New York. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and Richie was driving a 65? mustang convertible, dark green with black interior. It was a long trip, a couple of hours and we stopped at Howe Caverns. There was one area thar had a heart shaped stone on the ground, flat from wear. As it turned out Richie and Regina were standing on the stone unaware. The tour guide was talking and stopped when he noticed them on the stone holding hands. The guide said,” It is legend, that anyone standing on this stone , eventually marry and have a happy life.” They were so in love then and after their marriage their love only grew stronger.
I haven’t spoken with them for years, saw them a few times at family events, but as time keeps us busy with our own families and children we didn’t keep in touch very often. I spoke with Regina a few times before she got very sick and Richie and I kept in contact on Facebook and shared our thought on the political situation. Anyone who knew Richie, knows what his views were.
Richie is now reunited with the love of his life.
May they rest in blissful peace for eternity .❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️

To Kristen, Rich and Tommy: I can’t recall how many years we were your neighbors on Appleby. Prior to that, my sister, Virginia had the pleasure of being your neighbor. My regret is that we didn’t spend enough time with your parents. Regina and Richie were the kindest, most loving couple we have ever met. We knew we could always count on them for anything. Busy raising our 2 little ones and working full time, just wasn’t enough time on the weekends to enjoy their company. We would give anything to be able to turn back the clock and spend more time with them. It’s only now, as we’re older, that we realize the importance of family and friends and the value of taking time to “smell the roses!”. Although we lost touch through the years, we have never forgotten your wonderful family. Our prayers are with you all and your families. We know how difficult it is to lose a brother, a father, a grandpa! Love from Gloria & Gilbert Rodriguez, daughter Danielle and son Eric.

We are so thankful for our lifetime of love and memories with you. Over the last 49 years we shared dinners, family activities and lots of travel.

Now as you are reunited with your beloved Regina, we are happy for you. Our hearts will have a void without you, but we know you are in GREAT hands. Our love for you and your wonderful family will be eternal.

It is with heavy heart we say goodbye for now!

Dear Weck family, I was so sorry to hear that Richie passed away. I had the great honor to work with Richie over the years at Shell. Richie was a mentor and a friend. The first time I met Richie he was a knight in shining armor who rode to the rescue and worked day and night to resolve a Billion dollar imbalance in a financial system. The project was in crisis and Richie and I worked side by side to debug and reprogram the entire system. Richie always was a joy to work with, always optimistic, can do attitude. Richie was young at heart and lived life to the fullest. I can remember talking to him, reviewing his pension and telling him life is too short. Please retire but he loved his work the challenge of it all. When he retired, I lost track but was able to reconnect with him for dinner a year after his wife passed away. He was heartbroken. My dad was in hospice at the time and we shared memories and cried together. I know that he is now with your mom in heaven.
