He was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret, and his father, Joseph, and an infant brother James.

Rich was a loving father. He provided so many good memories for his children. Loved baseball. Loved to Golf. Loved the outdoors in general. He played a big role in little league football in Hubbard, Ohio when his boys were that age. He will be missed but I know that his memory will live forever. I am so sorry that he had to go so soon...sending lots of love and prayers to ease your pain...
