    Uncle Richie was one of the best Uncles I could ever ask for. Uncle Richie will be missed by all. One of my favorite memories of him is during Christmas playing ministers cat with the family. One year he made a Festivus card based on Seinfeld – featuring the words “It’s a Festivus for the rest of us.” and “All donations will be given to the human fund.” He was someone we could all look up to. The most hilarious, kind, and caring person. He would always go out of his way to help a friend in need. I was very blessed to know him.

  • Steven and Danna Welsh

    Always the best brother and friend. You will be missed dearly but, for ever in our hearts.

    I didn’t know Rich well. But working at the rink, I covered many of his games. From the Chiefs to pick up games. He was so loved by everyone at the rink. From his teammates, staff and friends. He was a heck of player and an even better man. He was always kind to me when we spoke. Rest in peace “Big Rich”. We’re all going to miss you so much!
