I worked with Rich at Chrysler for many years. He was someone I enjoyed working with him professionally and talking with him personally. He will be missed.
I worked with Rich for many years and considered him a collegue and a friend. He will be sorely missed at work and we all feel a deep loss with him gone. Our prayers are with you while you learn to live without him here in your presence but rest assured we will never forget him. God bless all of you while you work through these difficult times.
I worked for Rich several times at Chrysler over the years and have learned alot from him along the way. He wil be sorely missed at Chrysler, but not a much as by his family My thoughts an prayers go out to his family.
My condolences to the family, our thoughts are with you in this difficult time. He was a great person to learn from and collaborate with at CTC. Rich was a man who made work enjoyable and whose professionalism leadership will be sorely missed.
During our tenure at Chrysler, I also enjoyed the outside activities - softball, bowling, a few pops... Terrific man to be associated with!
We did not know Mr. Long; however, we do know his loving mother, sister, and niece. Richard was blessed with wonderful, caring family. We are sorry for your loss. God be with you.
I worked with Rich at Chrysler for many years before my retirement. We were more than just fellow workers, we were friends. He will be missed.
There are only few people in this world that influence me professionally. Rich was one of them. I worked with him for a short period 3 years ago here at CTC. The time I did spend with him was great and he will always be someone that I will look up too. If I can half the success he did here at Chrysler as he did, I will be further ahead than most. What a great guy. I will make sure to have a pop for him at the 24th street tavern. Thanks Rich...
