Dick was a wonder guy. I enjoyed my friendship with him in high school after Vinnie Giglio introduces us. I regret not being able to attend the memorial service for him. Dick was such a kind and loving man that we all loved.

Judy, Michael, Tommy, Stacy:
My sincere condolences to you with the passing of my good friend Dick Alessio. We had several great moments on the ball field and basketball court during our high school years and over the summers at the Rec Center and Cayuga Lake that I will always remember.
Great times off the athletic field also!!
Dick was far ahead of his time with his delicate use of the English language. He spoke often in a language far above my comprehension. I’m sure he probably is laughing at my saying that, but oh so true.
A prayer for you and my good friend, may he be in peace.
