We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Martin Hughes Inc. Funeral Home
Richie boy had a smile that could set the world on fire. He had a tough guy exterior but was a teddy bear at heart. He was a charmer known for his spontaneity and innovation. He was known for making people laugh with his awesome sense of humor and his fascinating ability to do a high kick. Richie always lived for the moment. If he wanted something he got it right there and then without hesitation. He lived each day for the moments they brought on so he could live life with no regrets. As a kid he was adventurous, always getting himself into trouble which helped him become fearless in his older age. He was the biggest animal lover, always bringing home strays and caring for them. He took pride in our dog pack - he was for sure our patriarch. Richie was a loving son and grandson, but he loved and looked up to his sister Ashley more than anyone. He was a great friend and was always there to help whenever anyone needed him. He had the biggest heart. If something was broken he was able to fix it, if something was heavy, he was able to carry it. If the dogs needed a loud whistle to get them in check - Richie was your man. Richie lived through his music as he said music and food heals the soul. He loved his video games, Disney movies, baseball cards, basketball (especially the knicks), breaking bad and walking dead action figures, lotto tickets, the beach and of course, he was a marijuana connoisseur. Most importantly, Rich loved his dogs especially his boy Zeus who will miss him very very much. Richie will be missed more than he could ever know and we all can’t wait until we see him again. We hope that he is up there with his mom, dad, and dog Max watching over his family, friends, cat and pups.
