Condolences for Ricki "Rick" Graziano

Jim Harris posted on 11/6/11

I loved Rick Graziano like a brother. I made him laugh, he made me laugh. He's easy to talk to. I would give him hugs, and he would hug me back. He would help build confidence in me. I am numb. I can not comprehend him being gone. I am at a loss for words, but!! my thoughts will always be happy, thinking of him. I remember telling someone, that over all these years, when one of the old timers would retire, it would take a little piece of my heart. With Rick, it has taken a chunk. I am so sorry Mrs. Graziano, knowing how much I'm going to miss him. But, knowing how much (more) you will.

Worked with Rick for many years at Lubrizol. He was a great person. And a very good friend. Spent a lot of time with Rick golfing and going to see the Tribe. He will be dearly missed.Rest in Peace Ricki P.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Rick. Whenever I think of him I'm reminded of all the Cleveland Indian games he and I use to atttend, sitting in the bleachers for a double-header hoping the Tribe would play an extra innings game, or playing wiffleball in the backyard. He was a great guy and I'm sorry we never had the chance to catch up with each other. He's in our thoughts.

Dear Mrs Graziano, It was with great sadness that during my visit to the US this week I heard of Rick's illness and sadly his passing.I work for Lubrizol in the United Kingdom and have visited Wickliffe on many occasions since 1994. Rick was one of those people you meet and never forget, a great colleague to work with, always willing to help and full of ideas. Also during that time he bacame a friend.My thoughts are with you and your family.Ian Bown
