He was a para-medic, then a nurse all his life. He was a bit reclusive and loved his spirits, but he never missed a day of work. He spent many of his off hours with the children in the cancer wards entertaining them and telling stories. He was my closest friend though we didn't see each other much, we spoke on the phone regularly. The coroner called me to notify of his passing and said that I was the only number in his cell phone. I miss the old boy.

The photo on this page is not Richard "Blackie" Romero.   This Richard Romero is probably still among us and would be a bit upset with this posting.  As for the proper photo to be on this page , I can't help you, but maybe one could be located in the yearbook.
