    Joe was a kind, loving, talented, soft spoken man. He loved taking care of his family. He sure will be missed.

    I had only met Mr Rich a few times. He seemed to be a very down to earth person to me. If his son Joe is any indication of his values and devotion to family he will missed by all who knew him well. Joe is married to my sister Sharon and is always there to lend a helping hand when needed. May God bless Mr Rich's family.
