Shocked to learn of his passing, he grew up around the corner from me, we were in Elementary School together and we both were at Penn State.

My best to his family

Our family name for him was Dickie.  He was my first cousin.  In addition to Christina, he has a son named Richard Roby Day.  We all miss him and the comments said about him were absolutely true.  He was a caring person to all he met.  The world is less because of his loss.
