What a blast from my past. My sincere condolences:( I grew up in Mil Acres. When Rich was a boy he broke his arm and my father ( now 82) picked Rich up and carried him home. Growing up in Mil Acres, I cut Rich’s mom’s grass and took care of her house. Before heading to law school in 1985 and while attending West Liberty, Rich was my boss at Sears at the Ohio Valley Mall. What a great boss and a great guy.Cool dude for sure. Doug Suter

Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that a bereaved family can experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way. May the family find comfort, through prayerful reliance on “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

Cathy and family,
Words cannot express my sorrow at hearing of the passing of Rich. He was the best boss ever and a mentor for everyone! I haven’t seen you all since our granddaughters made their first communion together. I’m so grateful he found his life and family with you Cathy… he was a proud Dad and Grandfather. May all your memories help sustain you in the days ahead. Peace be with you.

I met Rich and Cathy at Uncle Pete’s and whenever I was there eating and Rich and Cathy came in we could chat for a bit. He was an extremely nice and friendly man and will be missed. My sympathy to Cathy and family.

I will forever miss Kahuna! We call Rich “Kahuna” out of pure respect and because all of us that had the opportunity to work with him, looked up to him. He shared his wisdom and gave us all guidance. I am so fortunate to have also called him Friend.
God bless the soul of our Kahuna! And God bless Cathy and the kids!
