A Class ACT generous of both spirit and self, a great sardonic wit, a walking talking medical linguist, and who was there for one through thick and thin. As we Irish say he was a lovely guy.

Rich was, perhaps, my closest friend since I moved to Sarasota 20 years ago. We played many rounds of golf together, had weekjly lunches together until recently, and always had interesting conversations. We often shared memories of New Jersey with each other. He was very intelligent, caring and had a great sense of humor. I will miss him terribly.

We are so sorry to hear about Rich's passing. We enjoyed spending time with him at SBCC, Christmas Eve dinners at your Siesta Key home. and Rich's wry sense of humor. We will always remember him, and he will be missed. Our love to you and Michelle. Rebecca Sachs.
