Rich loved his family as well as the Wauseon community where he was an outstanding husband, father, grandfather, coach, mentor, and friend.
Rich prided himself on being a coach to Di and Mike as well as many of their friends growing up. Rich prioritized games and practice even if he had to jump on the field in a full suit.
Rich was known for always being there to lend a hand and the first to say “Hey! Can I help? What do you need?” to any and everyone. Rich relished in building up his community.
Rich and Barb spent many beautiful years in Sun City, Arizona where they enjoyed growing fruit trees and spending time with their friends at the ball fields, enjoying a nice meal and even checking out a casino.
Rich loved baseball, especially the Chicago Cubs, football as long as it was Ohio State, and restoring antique Corvettes.
Rich enjoyed playing in softball leagues, beating his friends in darts and pool, and always having a smile on his face.
Although he had many hobbies and interests, Rich was most passionate about friendship and the love he had for his wife, children, and grandchildren.
Rich filled every room he entered with love and compassion and he was extremely proud of his wife, children, and grandchildren in all their wonderful lives and journeys.
He always taught his children and grandchildren to love their family, have integrity, and live a full and honest life.
His legacy lives on as he is met in heaven by his mother and father, his oldest son, and friends he has missed over the years.
