First, let me echo the sentiments expressed by Tom and Andrew. Rich was not
only a member of the birding community, but his interests spanned many
aspects of nature. He had great expertise in botany, butterflies, herps, and
shells, but even that was not the limit of his interests. As such, he will
be greatly missed by so many. 


Here are the wake and funeral specifics as I received them from his son
Brian. I'm pretty sure that should be P.M. on the second wake time slot, but
I'm trying to get confirmation on that.



Richard Kelly's wake will be at the New Hyde Park Funeral Home on Tuesday
September 10, 2019. From 2:00-4:40pm and 7:00-9:30am.

Funeral Mass is on Wednesday September 11, 2019  at 9;30am at the nearby
Holy Spirit Church Interment - St. Charles Cemetery.
