So sorry to hear of the passing from our presence of a beloved member of the F.D. Roosevelt High School, Hyde Park, NY, class of 1955. Richard faithfully attended our class reunions, the last one being our 60th reunion. He visited our family frequently sharing his faith and updating us on his family. Our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
With prayers,
Kay and Bill
