  1. My earliest memory of Uncle Richie dates back to when I was about 4 years old. We were visiting from Florida and I remember he was working on a car. I couldn’t see what he was doing because being only four I was rather small in comparison to the car height. I kept hanging around on tip toes trying to see what he was doing, he was talking to me the whole time telling me what he was doing. Then like a hero he scooped me up with one arm and placed me on the edge of the car just under the roof so I could see exactly what he was doing. I’ve always been very curious about how things work mechanically, looking back I believe my curiosity began that day. Uncle Richie could’ve been “too busy” to be bothered with a pesky little kid, but he wasn’t, he made me feel incredibly important.
    As I grew older he always had a funny joke to share, and a strong gripping hug for me. Even as his body began to betray him his eyes were still full of mischief and glistened with love. He was a giant of man with a heart and soul that was beautiful. He will be missed. Fly High Uncle Richie your body is whole again. Love you Jeanette

  2. Dad, strongest Man I ever knew. You handled everything life ever threw at you with a smile and a shrug.
    When you get to heaven give mom a big hug from all of us we will all miss your witty sense of humor.
    “Hurry up and wait” love you dad

  3. Rich was a remarkable man. He was always smiling despite his many health issues, never complaining but always very positive. He is reunited with the love of his life, Carol. Rest in peace for you fought the hard fight for a long time.
    Much love,

  4. I don’t know what to say about my brother.He was the oldest of the three children and he took the role to heart.Adele could do nothing wrong and if anyone tried to do anything to her they where going to answer to him.But the best memory I have of him was of a sickly child who would watch all the children playing thru a fence and and he would come over and play with me .You see he had the biggest heart of anyone I ever knew and I idealized him and lucky for him he marry someone just like him Carol and now they are together again in heaven.I love and miss you

  5. Although we haven’t seen Richie in many years, we did spend many holidays and family events together when all our children were young. We would all gather at my sister, Pam and Artie’s little upstairs apartment. The seven kids, benj, Arthur, Joseph, Tracy, Pam, Richie and Kristen would play for hours while we us six adults chatted. Those were the days….
    May Richie Rest In Peace In God’s Loving Embrace. Our deepest condolences. Love Deb & Joe Klein
