Rich and all the Travaglini family, so sorry for your loss. While I only had the privilege to meet your dad in passing here in NJ, I loved reading about his amazing life story. Your family love shows it’s strength through your parents love. Cherish the many memories, and thanks for sharing that special baseball one with me. Blessings, Judy, David and Reagan

To Dicks Family, I had the honor and privilege to work with Dick at Frito Lay. I started in 1978 and recently retired. As a young 21 yr old rookie , which Dick often referenced. He was our Shop Steward, our leader and a guy you could go to for help with anything. He pulled no punches and told it like it is . We all knew about his run on Jeopardy and how proud he was of that . No surprises he was a very smart man . I attended his retirement part which was a blast. I got to meet his lovely wife and I think one of his sons were there . So happy to see he had a long retirement and wonderful life . Heaven has one of the good guys now . Sincerely Don Palumbo Hardyston N.J.

Gale, Maryann, Mark, Richard, and all of the Travaglini Family. This was a man who knew who he was. Never one to back down, other than if Paula said something, he would present his case and it generally was solid. I was honored to be able to call him my friend. Strong in his Faith and Family. As he now Rests in Peace, I know he expects his survivors to carry on the Strong Tradition he and Paula established. God Bless. Ron Rossi, Sr.
