Sorry to hear of Richie's passing. He was a great coworker and learned a lot from working with Richie at AIT in Mountain View while he was semi retired. Prayers go to the family.

When I first met Richie, I was still just a pup as he called it. He and his wonderful wife were dear friends to my grandmother when she was alive. Though I didn’t see that much after I grew up, when I saw them, there was always hugs and making sure that I was truly doing well and always took the time to visit and catch up. Though he was gruff, he was truly a gem of a person that was truly who he was and encouraged me to be more of that in my own life! You’ll be missed Richie! My prayers for the Lords perfect peace and comfort to be with all family and those who knew him in Jesus name!

Martha - My heart goes out to you and your mom! I lost my mom February 1st 2020...the pain is overwhelming. Please know that I am here for you. I will pray for peace and comfort for the both of you in days to come. I will cherish the memories I have of your dad. He was quite the character :-) How he always called Ben "Muammar Gaddafi" or how he always asked the cats is they wanted a "barbecued mouse." Oh that man could make me laugh...awesome memories. Or the time you got a round brush rolled up into your hair in the bathroom at the house on Ferris St and he had to slowly cut it out of your hair. I love you friend!

Marion and Martha-
Richie was one of the best friends I ever had. He never asked to be my friend, he just did it.
In the 28 years I knew him, there's no way to count the times he said "I've had a good life". He knew his happiness was only because of the work he did. It puzzled me that he spent so much time, but I'm beginning to understand. Thank you for sharing him with us all.

We are so sorry to hear of Richie's passing. He worked with my son; Jacob at Conoco gas station here in Mountain View a few years ago and we both really liked Richie. Jacob really enjoyed working with him. May God's comfort be upon all of you.
