We are blessed to have Ryan as our son in law and the kind and caring character of Richard move forward with his grandson's attributes. Our sincere condolences from Canada.

My sincere condolences regarding the passing of my good friend Rich. Dick and I first met During the late '40s in catechism classes at St. Mary's Church in Valley Stream, where both our fathers were members and friends at the KofC. We remained close friends all through junior and senior high school years and teammates on many of the school teams; football, basketball, baseball, some occasional golf, etc. Rich then on to RPI, me to the USN, our contact became limited to high school reunions. It wasn't until a 2016 Florida reunion when we became close once again, with so much in common; engineering, construction, sports, politics, etc. We so much enjoyed reminiscing. His obituary described him perfectly - a BEAUTIFUL individual.

Deepest condolences to Pat and his extended family. Dick was an inseparable friend from our days at VS Central High, where we shared countless adventures together. He was also my roomie and fraternity brother at RPI. We managed to stay connected during our adult lives. He was my go-to guy to discuss the plight of the Giants and Mets. We have all lost a very valued and trusted individual. Fritz Bauer

Sending my deepest condolences on the loss of such a beautiful soul. I’ll never forget the kindness Mr. & Mrs. Owens should me when several of us (Chris’ teammates) slept at their house for a lacrosse game in college. Over the years he always checked on us through Chris. We couldn’t ask for no better angel to look upon us now.

I will always remember Richard as a kind and generous man - with a big heart - who loved his family and grandchildren dearly. Richard, I"ll never forget your kindness, our time hanging out at Big Daddy's, sharing recipes, playing chess together and listening to all of your stories and making me laugh. Richard, you'll be sorely missed! Lots of love ❤
