Robert R. Ricci
January 11, 1945 – April 6, 2008
Our dearest father, husband and grandfather Robert ‘Bob’ Ricci passed away quietly and peacefully on Sunday April 6, 2008. Bob is survived by his two children Jason and Sean, grandson Wyatt Parker, and wife Sandra along with many friends and extended family. He was born on January 11, 1945 in New York City to Mary and George Ricci. He grew up in Queens, NY along with his two sisters Amelia and Mary. In 1966, he married his teenage sweetheart Sandra Piccione Ricci. After 4 years in the Navy, Bob graduated from AAS SI Community College in 1972, and went on to receive his MBA from Baruch College in 1974. He had a successful career in the photo industry spanning over 3 decades with Qualex, Kodak, AAA Imaging, SMI and Storefront.com.
As we celebrate his life, he will always be remembered as fun-loving, hard-working and strong-willed – the ‘life of the party.’ But, most of all he will be remembered as a good friend, devoted father and loving husband.
We were blessed to have him in our lives and he will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.

The West Coast memorial will be held April 12, at the Dana Point Marriott, 25135 Park Lantern, Dana Point, Calif., from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The East Coast memorial will be held April 19 at the Hyatt Regency Princeton, 102 Carnegie Center, Princeton, N.J., from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
