  • Donna, my condolences to you and your family.

    Rich was a uniquely different individual. One always felt good when Rich was around. He could make us laugh. His smile (sometimes a mischievous smile) was always welcome. I, along with many of his classmates, have many Rich Nedohon stories to remind us of him. I feel privileged that he passed through my life and that, despite not seeing him for many years, we were always friends. He will be missed.


  • We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Rich. He was a cheerful neighbor with an electrifying smile. May he rest in peace.
    Blessings to you, Donna.

  • Donna and Family,
    Margaret and I are so sorry for your loss. Richard was always up beat and welcoming, in our conversations. Though they were very seldom. He was an impressive man. Richard, may you rest in peace.

  • Prayers, sympathy and condolences Donna to you and your family.
    Rich was always in a good mood which he freely spread to those around him. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Sorry to hear the sad news. Richie and I were friends and classmates all through grammar school and high school. A ton of funtime memories shared together. He was a true friend.

  • Sooo sorry for your loss Donna! Naples, Florida

  • Joan and I recall meeting Richard early after our move to Traditions at Christiana. Then, Richard appeared in fine health and was certainly in fine fiddle for witty conversation. He was driving a pick-up as we remember and he, chuckling, informed us our back windows opened on to his windows and so don’t get to running around in your all-together just on our account. That memory stuck. Later, we had two conversations in his driveway over how to run an HOA and I found his advice helpful going forward. Donna, Mark, please understand our prayers and concerns that your hours for grieving and recovery be brief even while memories go on forever.

  • Donna, so sorry to hear of your loss. You & your family will be in my prayers. To this day, I still think of the good times we had with your family. Rita was a good friend.

  • I will miss you you were like sister to me instead of a aunt.I will miss talking to you on a weekly basic.God bless you always.I will truly miss you.Love Always Mae

  • Sad to hear of Richards passing. You have my condolences. He welcomed me to saint Augustine having started in my sophomore year and honored me with being best man in your wedding. He would call me on my cellphone usually while driving and laughing as hard as could be causing me to pull over so we both could laugh at our ventures at St. Augustine. My heart grieves with you Donna and sorrowfull for you loss.
