Dear Betty and family, I am so very sorry for the loss of Rich. I am still in shock and saddened beyond words, we worked together since I came to ATL/A80 21 years ago. He was such a good controller and a very pleasant person to work with. I pray that God gives you the strength to sustain you through this very difficult time.

I have worked with Rich since 1999. My wife Andi has worked with him since 2004.If anything Rich was rock solid and did things his way. His way always worked. For that and the person he was he had our utmost respect and admiration. His presence will be sorely missed by his air traffic family for some time to come. Our prayers are with you and your family.
