    Hey there sir, just want to let you know how high my 1st impression of you is. Thanks to robert carcano, you and i met at the car show in Ontario. You are one amazing dude. Especially a motor cop. You dudes are usually low key, shake hands hi and bye in under 2 seconds. You are the exact opposite. You and i spoke like we were gossiping like a pair of chicks!! Lol…. And whats really amazing is that i only met you the 1 time. We connected. You made me feel like we have been boys for years. All this in just a few hrs. Thank you sir!! I pray you are up in the clouds along with St. Michael just loungin’ forever. Keep an eye out for the rest of us….. God bless you and youre whole family.

    End of Watch 1/9/2019 RIP partner
    Rich was not just my best friend. We loved each other like brothers. Friends for 35 years, We were there for each other through all the highs and lows of life and everything in between. The ten years we were Motor Cops together was truly the best ten years of my career and he felt the same. Though gone only a short time, I miss him terribly. We texted or emailed daily and frequently had marathon phone conversations.
    He was honest, down to earth and such a friendly unassuming guy you couldn’t help but like him.
    An awesome friend/brother.and a wonderful, loving father and grandfather, he will be missed by so many.
    I will never forget you my brother. I won’t say goodbye
    I’ll just say “until we meet again”
