Rich was a homeroom buddy for many years and we kept in touch by mail when he moved to FLA.  He was shy in high school (I think) but he wrote that he always wanted a date but was too afraid to ask. I'm sorry to have missed that...

My condolences to his daughter, and thanks to his sister, Lorraine, for letting me know about Rich and his wife, Claire, who predeceased him.

Rich, rest in peace!
