Sad day, a person of outstanding character the world has lost. I will deeply miss our conversations, as Rich helped me start my recovery with PTSD, and became a friend in the process. I will miss him dearly.

Richie was a good friend who was also a mentor to me while working the streets in New Brunswick together on fellow Police Depts. He was also responsible for introducing me as a volunteer for the Cop to Cop program. We were going hang out a bit next week, but I just found out he passed. He thoroughly encouraged me to work with Cop 2 Cop. I will follow his advise and will very much miss him.
