I am so sorry to hear of Richie passing away. I joined the Avondale Fire Dept. the same time as Richie, we were junior fireman. We we great friends while growing up in Avondale. I'm sorry we did not keep in touch over the years, he was one great guy. I know he will be missed by his family and all his friends.
Rest in Peace Richie
