The 8 grandchildren he leaves behind were Rich's pride and joy.
Rich joined the Air Force as young man and after receiving a medical discharge worked in the steel industry until his retirement. He enjoyed camping, fishing, singing karaoke and spending time with his family and friends.
Rich always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips. He will be missed but never forgotten.
Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate Rich's life in their own way, raising a glass of their favorite drink would be quite appropriate.
