I knew Rich when he was a police officer working at Kenmore Mercy Hospital. He was one of the most kind and sincere gentlemen I have known. He was so helpful during his rounds and when we needed him for police back up at the hospital. He will be sincerely missed and I feel fortunate to have known such a good man. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Sean and Michael, so saddened to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a great guy. We will hold onto the great memories we had with all of you. We will never ever forget our adventure to Toronto. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dick was a guy I loved working with and hanging out with. You could always count on him to have your back or to make you laugh - often at the same time. We had a lot of fun back then and I think of him often. Sad to know he’s gone. You have our heartfelt sympathy. Sam & Cathie Camilleri
