Richie was a great athlete as he was a baseball all-star in Sandwich Little League and Sandwich Babe Ruth, and played on the Sandwich High School baseball and golf teams.

He had a passion for the freedom and thrill of riding his dirt bike, and had many friends due to his great smile, sense of humor and outgoing personality.
