I am deeply saddened by the loss of Rich. We had been friends for a very long time. We worked at McDonald’s when it first opened. Rich was always there for me and was a very good friend. I only wish that we were closer since my return to Pa may he rest in peace. You will be loved always Rich!
Dear Ophie & Family,
With deepest sympathy to you on the loss of Rich. A wonderful guy and a great and genuine friend to many. We all will miss him so, but his memory will live within all he knew.
God Bless. Rest in Peace, Richie.
My sincere condolences to the entire Stillwagon family. I have known Richie since his birth. His Mom and I grew up together and were friends all of our lives. He will be greatly missed by all. I have a sun catcher that he gave me when he was just little (Miss Piggy) and I will always keep it and cherish the memories I have of him throughout his life time. May he rest in peace. BJ
Thank you ma’am. He was a great person and a wonderful father.
His only son
