Doreen and Rachel -- We both send heartfelt condolences. Rich was a "bigger than life" personality who brought optimism and energy to his many endeavors. He brought the message of hope to hundreds of men through his Wednesday commitments in Auburn. Love, - Dan & Pat Lucas

Doreen, With great sadness, I extend my condolences to you and Rachael for your loss. Rich and I had many great discussions at our Friday lunches about customer service and of course, fitness. Rich always wanted to help people. As a good friend, he will be missed and never forgotten.

Doreen - I am terribly saddened by Rich's passing and your loss. He is constantly in my thoughts now. Rich was my oldest and dearest friend since college and like an uncle to my children. Our family will miss him and never forget the impression he made on all of us. I am heartbroken we won't have another decade or two of sports car racing and short ribs and his wonderful stories. I can't describe how much I miss him.

Rest in Peace Nice Person

Doreen, I send my sincerest condolences. Rich was an amazing man that not only consistently went out of his way to help others, he consistently went out of his way to compliment others which is truly an admirable quality that you don't come across often. I had the pleasure of working with Rich for ~ 7 years at CVI and truly appreciated his humor, advice and great conversation. I could go on for hours listing the impact Rich had on me, but I will leave it as I feel truly blessed to have known Rich and will pray God gives you the strength to get through this difficult time.
