Captain Richie was ONE OF A KIND!!! He was the life of the party with a great sense of humor! Bringing people together was his forte – whether organizing the annual LJWorld picnics, friends at his and Wanda’s boat, New Year’s gatherings, and any reason to get together just to spend time with family and friends! Richie, you were loved by so many from all walks of life! Everyone has a Richie story that will put a smile on their face. Richie lived his life to the fullest with his co-captain, Wanda.

Wanda, know you are loved and in our thoughts during this most difficult time. Let us know if you need anything! Holding you close in our hearts – sending virtual (((hugs))).
