Rich proudly served our country in the US Air National Guard. He was a Flight Engineer on the “Super Connie”. He worked as a Photo Instrumentation Specialist for US Steel and after he retired, he opened his own company Visual Inspection Systems and also had his own travel agency. He loved to build airplane models and trains. He loved to collect and listen to records. He spent many days hanging out at McShane’s Reality. You would never find him without a takeout fork in his pocket or a used coffee cup. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Above all else, he truly enjoyed the time spent with his children and grandchildren.
