Send Condolence

My sincere sympathy to the entire family. Dick taught me so much and was a such a good friend to me. I think of him often and how he took me under his wing at Buncher's from way back on Shore Avenue and the scrap business to the real estate business on Forward Avenue. I remember how proud he was of all his children. May you all continue in his ways.

I want to express my sympathy to the Rubinoff family on the passing of Richard. I met him in 1978 at the Butcher Company office on Forward Avenue when he was the son-in-law of Jack Buncher, a prominent developer of industrial parks in Southwestern Pennsylvania!
