    Rich was a great father and loving husband. He was a covering and protector of his family. He was a gentle soul with a kind heart and will be missed always by those who knew and cared about him.

    I am so very sorry about the loss of your dad. He was an amazing man. I thought the world of him. I will miss him coming around for Lakeview gatherings. One thing I distinctly think of when I think of him was just how nice he was. Just a great guy!
