Abrams, Richard "Rich" passed on Sunday, September 30, 2018. He was a man with a Heart after God’s Heart. Beloved husband and best friend of Marilyn Abrams. Cherished father of Heather, Lester and Benjamin Abrams. Step-father of Michael (Kellie), Bryony, Patrick and Katy Noszka. Beloved brother of Fred (Cheryl) Abrams. Step-grandfather of Kayla, Taylor and Michael Noszka. Uncle of Lee (Jennifer) Abrams. Also survived by many extended family. With a gentle soul, twinkle in his eye, and mischievous smile Rich captured the hearts of all he met. Saturdays at the Synogue, regular workouts at the JCC, dancing feet, joyriding bikes, and long walks with the dogs rounded out his time. A man of few words, but the heart of a mensch he was our quiet hero. He lived his life to the fullest, setting an example of what we can aspire to be. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Wednesday at 2 pm. Visitation one hour prior to services (1 - 2 PM). Interment Beth Shalom Cemetery.

Condolences from Richard’s cousin, Gene. We go back a very long way - we’re about the same age, he will be remembered and missed. Unfortunately I won’t be able to be in Pittsburgh for the services. My deepest sympathies to everyone.

Well will all miss Rich and his kind heart and caring personality. I am very sad that I cannot make the trip to Pittsburgh but you all are in my thoughts and prayers. May all the special memories of Rich help comfort us through this difficult time. “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
