Patty and family - so sorry for your loss (and mine). Rich and I had many happy times together when we were kids. Martha and I send our condolences.

We were classmates @ St, Agnes grade school & Miege Cleveland , Missouri

I didn’t know him well but I do remember that he sat in front of me in the 8th grade @ St. Agnes grade school. That must have been when he just moved to KC. He was a quiet guy but very nice. I didn’t know that he had served in Vietnam. I would have loved the opportunity to tell him how much I appreciated his service. I am so sorry for your loss.
