Dear Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Rich was a favorite cousin, and he will be remembered fondly. We especially appreciated the kindness that he showed to our dad, Martin. He was a very special man. Our sympathy and prayers are with all of you. God's Blessings,

I was lucky enough to work with Rich at Wildlife Services. We walked a lot of acres appraising deer damage. He taught me the ins and outs of propane cannons. He had that little tip of his head as he paused in conversation just waiting for a response. I admired his sense of art and music. I will miss seeing him at the Sun Prairie Blues Fest. I, like many others, will think of him every time I cross Horicon marsh. Take care and thank you for sharing him with us.

Family and friends of Rich - RICO. I received the news as I was in the middle of SE Utah getting ready to launch on a river trip down the San Juan. I am so thankful that Kathy and Martha contacted me, though the timing was awful. I am still stunned....Rich and I have been forever friends since he finished college, working at the Port of Milwaukee - when we lived together on Dousman St. in Milwaukee. I am stunned but most thankful that I spent time with him in Sept. when I visited to celebrate my mothers 90th. I then met up with Ron in New Orleans and we had a great conversation about Rich and the three of us and our ongoing friendship. Rich was special, thoughtful, kind, funny, quirky, his art is something I have always admired. I had returned a painting to him that he had done back in the 70's. We talked often on the phone and he always was surprised when I would call him on his birthday- our birthdays are the same day. Go figure! Anyways, I will miss him very much---one of the longest friends I have ever had, and will ever have again. We did get an opportunity to go camping in Idaho, but never got the chance to get him on a river trip...blessings to his daughters who he loved beyond words- he spoke to me often about you. And blessing to Kathy as well. Hope to attend what ever ceremonies you plan.

Dear Family & Friends of Rich...I just heard the news this morning, when Anna left a message on my machine...this is so distressing that I don't know what to say, just feel a need to reach out and express my appreciation for a long friendship, beginning at the port of Milwaukee, when Rich worked as a longshoreman, and continuing through a lifetime of changes and adventures...he was always interesting to be around, always had something new to share, always treated people kindly...a creative, gentle soul, who blessed my life in many ways---- thanks, Rich, and onwards with the Great Journey!
