    Karen, I am so sorry to learn of Rich’s passing. You have our most heart felt condolences. My wife and I knew Rich when he lived in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico. We visited with him for a nice lunch in Puerto Vallarta in 2018 when we were in the area.

    Rich was a sweet human being and we very lucky to have know him and have him as a friend.

    Karen, I so sorry for your loss. I was friends with Rich during the years he lived in Ajijic. We stayed in contact ever since then. Looking back I realized I had not been hearing back from him.
    It saddens my heart to know he is gone.

    We knew Rich in Ajijic. I shared a cabin with him on a cruise to Hawaii in 2012. I remember climbing Diamond Head and a lot of laughs over the years. Such a great guy. We’re sorry for your loss.
