I am a fellow St. Joe's and RCHS classmate with Kope. Class of 1966. Also ran track with him and was childhood friend. Used to have fun around Roselle especially at Gene Chrzanowski's home during our early years. Unfortunately, did not see him since our graduation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family during this difficult time.
i didn't know you too well at Roselle Catholic (Class of 1966) but you and I did "walk" together at our 50th in last year with the new grads.
Extremely saddened to hear of Rich’s passing. A terrific guy and great friend. The loss is much due to the incredible and long lasting friendship that Kope shared with me.
Condolences to Kathy and Rich’s family.
I am sorry to hear of your loss I was a friend and classmate and track team mate from 1962 thru 1966 at Roselle Catholic
Whie we were not in contact since RC we did see each other at various events
I will not be able to pay my respects in person as I will be attending a funeral in Cleveland
My prayers are with you
May your memories and Gods words found in 2 Corinthains 1:3,4
give you the comfort you need at this time, and remember the
hope we have in the fulfillment of His promise in Acts 24:15 of the
resurrection. With my sincere and deepest condolences.
I âm saddened to hear of Rich's passing. I was his classmate and track teammate, Roselle Catholic Class of 1966, and I have fond memories of "Kope" as a very decent and considerate guy, held in high regard by one and all. We were blessed with his company, most recently at our Class of '66 50th Reunion, and we will miss him.
Our condolences to Mrs. Koping and to Rich's entire family.
