To Richard's family I am so sorry for your loss ,I just found out about Richard's passing today when I spoke to Brandi at Diaz. I have known Richard for over 25 years. He has been my salesman for two different companies. I am deeply saddened because he was also my good friend. Michael Adams M&M tile and Woodworking.

To Richard's family and friends: I met Richard 5 or so years ago as a customer of Diaz. He was a great ambassador for the company. He delivered doors and drawers to me every 4 or 6 weeks. We always chatted for a bit about our families, he with 10 or 12 grandchildren (I forget the exact number) and me with just 2. He loved his family more than anything, and he was not shy to express that. Since we are both from Philadelphia, we shared that connection from the start. Richard was a true gentleman, and I grew to admire him very much. He was an avid story-teller. He was always positive, even if a snow storm was threatening and he had more deliveries to make before his long ride home. Richard was simply one of the finest people I have ever known, and I won't forget him. I hope memory of his his goodness eases your loss and carries you forward.

I worked with Richard at Diaz Manufacturing in sales. He was a hard working, kind and friendly soul who always treated people with respect and a smile. Every day he would say something to make you smile and was a true gentleman who in his 70's, would inconvenience himself to do anything kind and helpful for someone else. May you rest in peace Richard, i am honored to have worked with and known you. I am sending my thoughts and prayers to Cass and your family. Richard always spoke about his deep love and devotion to you all... and with all of his stories, i felt like i knew you all. We need more Richards in this world... it would be a much better place.

Richard was one of the first people we had the pleasure of meeting at St. Rita's when we joined the parish. His smiling face at the top of the church steps was always such a pleasure to see. Our deepest condolences to all of his family. He will surely be missed.
Best Regards
Lisa and Shirley Smoyak
