Jack and Kathy Reynolds, March 23, 2018 Rich and I worked together for several years in the Kansas city area. I was department manager of mens in the Blueridge JCPenney store when Rich started. When I received my first Store manager assignment it was Leavenworth, Kansas, one and half years later Rich came in as manager, his first store. I went to the Dallas Regional office, was there for three years. Then Rich was promoted to Regional office. Over the following years we always talked and kept in touch. Rich was born to be in Personnel work, he had a great personality, always considered him a great friend. My regret is that in our retirement years, I didn't keep the communication up, It will be my loss. My wife Ann and I send prayers out to Lari and family.

GREG WARREN, March 20, 2018 Rich will truly be missed. He was my first District Manager as a store manager and it was an honor to work for him. He was the most professional, personal, and caring supervisor I ever worked for. His positive personality and commitment rubbed off on all that came in contact with him. Rich was what JCPenney was all about, taking care of his team and building successful individuals! Our thoughts and prayers will be with his family and friends.
