Richard worked with iron his whole life. He put his heart and soul into it, from a boy in his fathers shop – to the tallest buildings of Boston. He was a proud member of Iron Workers Local 7 until 2019 when he retired. He helped to construct many buildings around Boston including Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Natick Mall, and Gillette Stadium to name a few. In his retirement he was a proud business owner of olde english iron, where he crafted quality American made railings. He was a true MacGyver who could fix anything. Richie loved riding his 1988 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail, the Patriots, fishing, and classic rock music. He was a very warm, welcoming person and a big goof. He loved his girls.
