Condolence & Memory Journal

Gone 3 years....hard to believe. I remember you coming up right before you passed...we went to Seaside, hung out with Jerry, won some t-shirts. You are a part of so many important memories for me. Couldn't begin to count them all. After you moved we mostly spoke on the phone once in a while, but I really miss those once in a while conversations. They were great.
You are missed......

I am so very saddened to hear this news. Rich was a great friend during our times at USF. I was a little sister in his fraternity, Delta Tau Delta. He was the most sincere fun-loving guy. My deepest condolensces to his family.

Some of my most cherished memories include my friend Rich. From ALJ High school to things like Federko's or the Biscayne, or Barnegat and times at the shore, and even afterwards when we kept in touch and kind of shared what was going on both good and bad. Over all the years, there was a lot of both. A truly great friend who battled so hard, and always was in good spirits no matter what was going on. I'm glad we saw each other last summer. It created another cherished memory. You will be missed. Both Anna and I give our condolences to the Siemering family. A truly terrible loss.

Rich was my colleague and mentor for many years. He and I met early in my career as an engineer and I appreciated our talks and his guidance. He will always be remembered for his passion for his work, but it was his son, wife, and family that were his ultimate love. He lived life well and will always be remembered. Go well my friend and we know you will be watching over us.

I can hardly believe that I am actually looking at Rich's face on this obituary. He was a soldier when it came to fighting cancer! I am so proud of him and his will for life. All he wanted was to be there for Jennifer and Josh. His family was why he hung on so long. But he was amazing before cancer came into his life! Cancer never defined him.....He was my big brother, my friend, and just the funniest person I have ever met. What a gift it was for me to have Rich for the 56 years that I have been on this earth. Although I don't understand why he was taken so young, I also know that the time he had here touched everybody he met. Everybody that knows Rich, has stories to tell! What a great life he lived. Rich was just one of those people that everybody loved. I'm just blessed to have even known him and more blessed to have spent my life loving him! I'm sure when he entered heaven Saturday morning, God greeted with open arms and told him what a great job he did in his earthly life. Great Husband, Dad, Son, Brother and Friend to all that knew him! Rest In Peace My Brother and Hero.

Rich, you've always been the best brother anyone could hope for. I've always loved your sense of humor, love of the outdoors and your need to always be doing something.
I've been so proud of you with your love and care for your family and how much you did with Josh.
I'll miss you Rich.

Please accept my deepest condolences for your family's loss. During this difficult time may you be comforted by fond memories and loving words; like those found at Isaiah 57:15.
