Sorry Bianchi, I know you worked for him a while back.

There's going to be a memorial service for Rich on Sunday February 26 at 5:30 pm, at 301 Waterview Terrace, Vallejo, CA. It's open to Alfisti.

I'm Sorry To Hear This; I've Known Rich For Years. He Was Selling His Alfa Inventory Here On The BB A Couple Of Months Back And I Spoke To Him On The Phone; He Didn't Mention Any Health Issues. -John

I last visited Richard New Years Day. He was resting peacefully and passed away later that evening. He was in car accident last August, the fault being the other driver running a stop sign and broadsiding his pick up truck. He was likely driving back from the facility where he was temporarily storing his Alfa parts, or looking for a new shop and garage space having lost his lease at his Virginia Street shop in Vallejo last February. He was never able to fully recover from the complications of his injuries, nor probably the loss of his shop and livelihood. He was a good friend and always there when I needed help on my Alfa. I learned a lot from him.. both what to do and not to do. I don't know if I will attend his service... I think I'll be in the GTV driving Highway1, and I think Richard would have preferred it that way. He is missed.

This is terrible news, I spoke with him many many times on Montreal and other Alfa matters over the last 20 years, we never met but I was trying to get up to Boston to meet him on his most recent trip to the east coast, unfortunately it didn't happen. Really sad to hear. Peter.
