He was a lifelong member of St. Bonaventure church where he served as a Eucharistic Minister for over 25 years and was a member of their golf league.

Richard became my closest friend when our family moved to Glenshaw, and our families were always close. He was a wonderful classmate at Saint Bonaventure School and at North Catholic High School. I will always have many fond memories of him, his parents, and his brothers. He and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Nancy, Patrick and Harley,

I am so sorry for your loss and really in shock over the sudden loss of Richard. I have not seen Richard in years, but remember his laugh and his very welcoming manner. He could always light up a room. He will be very missed.
Again I am so sorry for your loss.
