He also loved traveling, and had an adventurous spirit and playful, spontaneous nature. Richie loved music, and was a talented guitarist. He is lovingly remembered for his witty dad jokes, and pranks he pulled on his friends and family. Nothing gave him as much joy as being a dad, and the time he spent with his three sons.
