I met Richie at Roto-Frank Of America when we both worked there. I always considered it a pleasuere to stop and talk to Richie whenever we crossed paths at work.
Since then I would see him in Downtown Deep River at lunch every once in a while, and at the Speedbowl in Waterford on Wednesday nights, and as always would stop and talk to him for a while.
He always put a smile on his face, and was truly a happy, positive soul. I will miss the oppurtunity to see him every once in a while and my condolences go ouit to all who are close to him.
My deepest sympathies to family and friends.
Richie was a great childhood friend. He was a daily player in the summer long pick-up baseball league at the Deep River Congregational Church lot. Later I knew him again as an adult when he and Dave would come to all my daughters basketball games at H-K and we would meet around the Shoreline at games. He was a real nice guy who really knew his sports and a was great sports fan of all levels.
I was very fortunate to have known him, and am so saddened to hear of his passing.
