My deepest sympathy to rich's family. In our youth bristle lived a few doors down from me. He was a very nice guy. I ran into him occasionally in our older years and we shared a few laughs. He is one of the few truly good guys ive had the pleasure of meeting. May he rest in peace and may God bestow peace and strength to his family. RIP Bristle

"Shoe Leather Express"
When Richard asked his Mothe how he would get to Fun City, the swimming pool along Somerset Pike outside Johnstown, trying to get a ride there, his Mother told him to take the shoe leather express -- that is, walk.

We called him "Briss" because, when he joined our friendship group in his teens, his hair was styled to be upright like bristles. He was a good guy who had a great sense of humor, always one to appreciate the laughter in life. He was a good friend. I wish his family peace.
