  1. Richard was a life long friend. He & I used to be Alter Boys, & every day, we would serve early morning Mass. Richard and his Mom would come and pick me up in front of my house on Elvira Ave.
    We would serve Mass, then return home and get ready to ride our bikes to St. James grade school. After elementary school Richard went away, to go to school at Villanova in Ojai, Ca.
    After that he went to some place near Washington DC. His intention was then to study to be a Priest. Richard and I were best friends all through our school years together. He was
    born April 3rd. 1941, and passed away Jan. 6th. 2005, 64 years old. We used to go to the beach together, and we both liked playing tennis together. I will miss him as long as I am alive!!!

  2. I knew Richard as a fellow philosophy student at Villanova University, Pa, where he was before going on to Washington. I remember him as an extremely nice guy, quietly so if I remember right. I knew he was from Redondo Beach. I came across this page by chance, and now feel a great sadness. I’m sure all his family must still miss him and may I offer my very late but most sincere feelings of condolence.
