June 25th, 2018

Richie and I met in the early 60's as we met at a City College of NY house plan; 'Briggs 64'. We hit it off and socialized with our girlfriends and then spouses. Richie was the best friend anyone could have; he was honest, warm, sincere, and a real 'mensch'. We were blessed to attend Bar/Bas Mitzvahs, and Weddings that we shared with Karen and Todd.

Rich was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. It was a honor to have him as a friend for almost 60 years. Renee brought out the best that a Jewish husband could give to his wife. We know that Renee will have a hole in her heart.

Richie loved his grandchildren and they loved him back.

We loved you Rich; Our love to Renee, Karen, Todd and all the spouses and grandchildren.
