I only knew Rich for six years. We were board members on the RVSA. Rich was a true gentleman. It is rare to meet someone who had his quality of character. He deeply cared about his friends, the RVSA, and of course, the New York Jets. He will be missed!.

Rich and Denise traveled to Europe with us more than once when my husband and I led groups of David Brearley students on trips over the years. Rich was never in a bad mood, loved being around the kids, and was always fun to spend time with. He was easygoing, and just enjoyed life to the fullest which was so inspiring. Our hearts go out to Denise and Bobby and Kristen. We will always remember Rich with fondness.
