Rich married the love of his life, Pam, on April 17, 2004, and he was a proud dog dad to Sadie.
Rich loved racing and drove a variety of stock cars, number 46G, at Hales Corner Speedway before passing the torch to his nephew. Uncle Rich was the best fan to all his nephews watching their athletic events, coaching and travelling to see them. He loved playing with and reading to his nieces. All of Riches nephews, nieces, and great nephews and nieces loved him very much. Rich also enjoyed traveling with his wife, Pam, and vacationing in the Northwoods. After his full retirement in June of 2020, Rich often joked at the title of “house husband” but enjoyed doing jobs around home that made time available for him and his wife on the weekends.
