Sending condolences to Rick’s entire family and friends during this sad time. We knew Rick through my brother and sister-in-law, Don and Kasi Daniel. Rick and Lucia were the best of friends to them and vice versa. It was always fun to see what antics they were up to next. From hysterical Halloween costumes, trying to one up each other with their outdoor party bars, or the many fun trips they constantly planned. We will miss seeing Rick when we visit Virginia Beach, but we know he is happy to be reunited with his beautiful Lucia.
Our deepest condolences,
Cammy and Chuck Groome
Rick and Lucia Raucci were our neighbors for more than 20+ years. They moved in across the street from us when Rachel was a baby. From the first meeting the family endeared themselves to us. They were great neighbors, full of energy and fun, they were always helpful when anyone was in need and they looked out for family and friends alike. We were saddened by the loss of Lucia a few years ago, and now the loss of Rick is truly hard to process. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to Rachel, the Raucci and Korver families. We pray that the memory of your wonderful loved ones brings you comfort. May God bless and comfort you.
Rick( Dickie) was my cousin who very special to me. Although we both moved from Massachusetts it was so nice when we would see each other again. He was a special person with a smile always on his face. He truly loved family. Bless you Rick. You are now with your beloved wife and other family. My sincere condolences to all his family. Love, Joanie
My Sincere Condolences to you and Family Lee in these times.
The handful of times I have met and seen this man; he was always smiling! Always! You could see the joy in people’s company as they talked. He loved his family above all.
Condolences from Craig and Sharon Korver. We met Mr. Raucci when our Grandson Tyler married his Daughter Rachel. He made a lasting impression as one who enjoyed life and people. Wish we could have had more time with him but know he is glad to be back with his beautiful wife and grandson who preceded him in passing. Look forward to being with them when our time comes.🐚 💐
