It was my honor to know Richard for half of my life. He was funny and had a huge heart especially when it came to family and friends. I will miss him talking with me about the Yankees. He was a great man and will be missed. Forever in our hearts.

Dicky was my Godfather, and my parents often told me of all the time he spent with me when I was a little girl. He would take me on the weekends and spend hours with my at the Asbury Park Boardwalk. I also remember him when I was very young visiting my parents at their home in Belmar, he was dressed in his uniform so I assume on leave or home from service. He will be missed by all his family and friends, my deepest condolences to all. Love Teresa Pagnoni Zaza

My sincere condolences to the DeRosa Family on Richard’s passing. I will be forever looking for him to come around the corner in ShopRite and show me the good buys of the week in the circular. I loved that he always directed me to check out the dented can section and label-less merchandise in the back of the store.....”there are always good buys there” ! His enthusiasm was genuine in food shopping and on occasion he would scoop up “hot” buys in the ACME.
Richard always provided a laugh or two when we played Trivia - one particular game he yelled out “Gardner McKay” and we were ten questions past that question . I will miss him on the beach listening to the Yankees and deciding what he was cooking for dinner and of course his train whistle ring on his phone that he did not hear.
We will miss his presence and I know he is at peace now. He adored Judy and was proud of his children and grandchildren.
You are missed, dear Richard but it has been a special time knowing you. God Bless You......and check out the shopping the heavens.
