I first met Richie in the mid-late 1970's when I was running offshore to fish. I saw a boat anchored out ahead of me so I ran around it to avoid any conflict. Little did I know that it was Richie and I had ran through his chum slick. I could hear him shouting expletives at me for the next 1/2 mile as I continued away from him. Well we have been friends ever since as he was an ardent angler and a great guy to fish with. Always available to help others, he was a kind and gentle man and a whirlwind of activity and we will all miss him.

Rich so sorry to hear about your dad he was a great guy and will be missed but never forgotten. I met your dad many years ago through the carpet business and he was always a great guy to do business with some one who was a straight shooter and was always fair with me. He will be missed.
