    We were sadden to learn of Richard’s passing. It was just in recent years that we became acquainted with him. He was a swell man,always friendly and pleasant and willing to talk sports! He will be missed by many at the Senior Center and we’ll miss seeing him also at the Saturday evening Mass. RIP Richard and extending our sincere condolences to Shirley and family.
