Dear Willo and Family...So sorry to learn of Richard's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Just seems like yesterday we talked over the back fence.

Mr. Rosepapa truly did find a friend in everyone, and those feelings of love were always reciprocated. He was a genuinely good man, an increasingly rare trait.. Mr. Rosepapa deeply loved his family, and when he spoke of Willo it was with the deepest affection. His years of service to Linsly will not go unremembered. Thank you, Mr. Rosepapa. Rest in peace.

My condolences to Rich's entire family, friends and coworkers. When you met Rich you couldn't help but like him. I had the privelege of working with him and being friends with Rich and Willo and having lunch and laughs. We will all miss him dearly

I called Richard Rosepapa my Buddy Rich. He and I went back over 50 years to our bowling days at the old Riviera Lanes and many good times. Then I moved to Bellview Hgts and Rich was my neighbor for 32years. We would sit on the porch and talk sports. A finer man you will never meet. When we moved Rich came and gave me a hug and said he Would miss me. I will never forget that. Rest in Peace Buddy Rich, Rest in Peace

Mrs. Rosepapa, Kevin, et al, He was a good man. I have no particular connection to Mr. Rosepapa other than being one of the many hundreds--thousands!--of Linsly students who was transported by this fine gentleman to whatever game, meet, field trip or adventure the school had in store for us on any given day. He was a gentleman, and quietly provided young men and women with an exceptional model of reliability, loyalty and dignity. Sincerely, Brad Gillenwater (Linsly Class of '92)

Dear Mrs. Rosepapa and family, You have my deepest sympathies for your loss. Mr. Rosepapa was a kind, gentle, and tolerant person. He was always calm while driving noisy students and sometimes adults around the tri State area. He got us to every sporting event under any weather condition. It was apparent that he loved his family and the Linsly School very much. He will be missed.

We are 2nd year Linsly parents and enjoyed Rich's stories and sense of humor. His last story to me was about his granddaughter's fear of the Suspension Bridge. He was showing the photo of the both of them standing on the bridge. He was telling how proud he was of her in conquering her fears. May God bless and be with your family. My family will be missing him. Keeping you in our prayers. The Earls Family
