He also enjoyed playing golf; watching Mike & Mike on ESPN; listening to classic rock music, especially the Doobie Bros.; classic cars, especially Chevelles; and visiting Estes Park, Colo., Silver Lake in Rochester, Minn., and various apple orchards in the fall. Rich loved watching reruns of ‘Cheers,’ and he was an avid Chicago Cubs and Iowa State Cyclones fan. He especially loved spending time with his family.
