  • Frank Busa

    Rich was a true big brother that was always there when I needed him. He was always the first to show up when anybody in the family was in the hospital. He was a true, honest mechanic his whole life. He took care of all the family cars for his parents, brothers, sister, relatives, and hundreds of other customers. His customers would even follow him from one automotive repair company to the next. He worked for Cities Service, Firestone, Sunoco, Goodrich, Good Year, BP Procare, and Procare. He worked as a mechanic and a manager from the ages of 16 until he was 64 when he retired. He was a loyal, loving brother that I will always remember.
    Love you Rich,

  • Tiana Viglione

    I will always think of your laugh, your smile, and the way the family would light up when they saw your face.
    I am sure Jay was there to welcome you with open arms. You will be missed.

    Love, Alaynna and Tiana Viglione

  • Bob and Sandra La Mar

  • Phillip Roessler (Godson)

    Uncle Rich, I will miss your Laugh, Smile and Cheerfulness as you were always the most positive person I have ever known. I will also miss all the great times we had at the many Casino trips we have taken, and I always looked forward to seeing you and spending time with you every time I came to Pittsburgh to see the family. I will treasure our relationship in my Heart Forever and never forget you. Rest in Peace and we will meet again. I Love You!

  • Dennis J Jacques

    Rich was such a great & kind man. We will all miss him so very much. I was hoping he could have made it to another card game at my house, and I still have his voice mail from the last one thanking me for helping him up and down my stairs. I hope the Steelers win yesterday made him happy above! My love and sympathies to Gloria, Dom/Lauren, Mike/Laura, Rich and the entire Busa family.
