We are so sorry Flo, and all family members, for your loss. It was our privilege to know Rich when he started coming to Stancato's with Flo to meet us for drinks and dinner. We are so glad they got together and shared many beautiful and happy times together. We would see them frequently while we walked our dog or sat in our backyard. He was a wonderful man. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you.

Richard was a childhood friend of mine when we lived on W. 46th street on the near west side of Cleveland. His family moved moved from the neighborhood in the mid to late 1940's and I never saw or heard from him again until his obituary appeared in the CPD. Attached is a photo taken in our driveway in either 1945 or 1946 where my brother Hank, Richard & me are sitting on the bumper of my uncle's Willys. My apologies to your family if this is not the Richard who was a boyhood pal.

My condolences to Richard's family.
