Rich was always a friendly, quiet and warm person to my wife (Cheryl) and myself. Every time we saw him, he would greet us earnestly and when you met Rich - you felt good and he was genuine. A funny story - he told my wife about a Christmas tree that had over one thousand lights! Cheryl asked how much it was and he said "well, it is about $1000". Cheryl laughed and thought it was a little too much, but Rich was so sweet and kept trying to sell it and we both started to laugh soon after. After a while, Rich laughed too as he really had a great smile and even as he grew sick, he came to church and I looked forward to seeing him sitting in the pew. I will miss Rich as many of his family and friends will too. God has him now and he is with the Lord for sure. Rich was a wonderful man and a wonderful human being. May he rest in peace +

Rich was an amazing person and all around great guy. I have never met anyone so nice and carefree as he was. Always had a positive attitude, always smiling and making people laugh. The time I spent working with him will never be forgotten. He will truly be missed! God has gained another angel in heaven. Condolences to his family and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
