hunting, gardening, photographing wildlife with many
trail cameras in his “back 40,” and sharing his pictures
and videos with friends, family, and his YouTube
channel subscribers. He was a diehard Pittsburgh

about his beloved Steelers and Pirates. Rich became
a first-time grandfather in March; his final days were
filled with incredible joy spending time with his
grandson, Frasier.

We were quite surprised and saddened to hear about Rich's illness and passing. We have fond memories of the family reunions at Aunt Marge and Uncle Roger's farm as well as visiting Rich at his farm. May he rest peacefully.

Rich was blessed with a loving wife, daughters, grandson, family, and countless friends. He was very spiritual and had many interests and skills, but most of all he had a big heart. Although I mourn his passing, I ease my grief by celebrating his life. We grew up together filled with countless hours of fun as brothers. His pain and suffering are gone. Memories of him can't be taken from us.
