  1. I was so sorry to hear of Rich’s passing. I worked with Rich as a scheduler at York Hospital. I don’t ever remember him having a bad day. He will be missed.

  2. To Rich’s family and his life partner Bill Campbell,

    I have known Rich for several years. I worked at the York Hospital Cath Lab but on occasion I would get to interact with Rich. He was a kind soul and was my “go to” person whenever I had difficulty registering patients for future appointments. He knew everything about how to get the job done and he was always so kind and eager to help me. He will be greatly missed by everyone and anyone who knew him. I just wish his retirement would have been longer. God bless all of you and God bless Rich for being the good guy he was. Such a kind soul.

  3. Bill, so sorry to hear of Richard’s death.
    There are no words that can be said to soften the heartache you feel. Rely on those around for support.
    As I said to you on Monday, Ken died on Oct. 17th after being together for 48 years, but it makes no differance if 17 or 48 years the pain is the same.
    So sorry for your loss.
