Rich and I started our work relationship swapping war stories on our home repairs, trying to figure out who printed what on our shared printer, and taking a brief moment every morning for a joke. Like a true gentleman he would be sure to provide a disclaimer prior to the show if his joke line up included questionable material. The music in our offices only mask so much, and Rich was the lucky one who got to share a wall with me; he heard some of the good but he definitely heard all of the bad...and what was heard was something we could always rehash and laugh over. His easy going professional demeanor and how he conducted himself should make his family very proud, he was an example for us all and he will be missed.
