Robert J. Riccardi, 45, formerly from Long Island, N.Y., left us unexpectedly on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011. He was born Aug. 29, 1966, to Carol and Victor Riccardi Jr., and was the youngest of their five children. A strong, powerful man to his loved ones, he gave all he could to make sure everyone he loved around him received the best he could provide.
He was preceded in death by his oldest sister, Debra Agoglia; and his lifetime companion and his trusty golden retriever sidekick, Zeke. He is survived by his one and only child, Elise Marie Riccardi; and his three older siblings, Victor Riccardi, Darlene Jensen and Daniel Riccardi. He is also survived by his multiple nieces and nephews, Sandra Beckham, Robert Agoglia, Christie Young, Shannon Riccardi, Daniel Jensen, Daniel Riccardi Jr., and Corrin Riccardi. Our hearts also go out to his great aunts and uncles, and his great nieces and nephews.
Visitation is at 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 29, and the service starts at 11 at Sutton Memorial Funeral Home, 1701 Sycamore Ave.
