Rich was one of my first teachers in the electrical industry. While we had gone our separate ways in business the last few years, I kindly look back on the lessons I learned from him and the laughs we had in the warehouse. Thank you Dick for all the great times in our fantasy hockey league as well.

I wish my condolences to his family and friends for losing such a nice, kind hearted man.
