I have fond memories of Richie growing up as young boys & playing hockey together for the Gladiators on the same team.  You could always count on Richie to crack a joke or the first one to congratulate a teammate on a scoring play.  I’ve continued to follow this case from afar, however, I often think about you Richie.  I hope & pray we can one day find the monster(s) responsible for taking Richie from us.  My prayers go out to Mr. & Mrs. Petrone who have always been so kind to me & my family.  I will continue to pray for you. Love,
Sam Gross

Happy 47th birthday richard…I pray that you are in peace….and will continue to watch over your family that misses you more and more as time moves on without you…Angela and little Timmy are our physical reminders of  the importance of moving forward in your honor and memory…my other prayer is a selfish one…and it is that before it is your families turn to leave this earth…may the justice that we seek prevail….may these prayers and hopes become a reality…love,
aunt lisa

Happy birthday my dear son. Not a day passes without thinking about you. Your grandson is growing bigger and stronger every day and you would be so proud of him.
Richard Petrone

Richard — thinking of you today on your birthday.  You are never far from my thoughts.  Just wanted to say “hello” to you on your birth date.  Love you always,

Eternity. Always was always would be. Time with no beginning and no end. And we are simply grains of sand. But for a brief flicker we come alive. We matter to some. We play a part in these dreams we call life. The length of time we are here doesn’t matter. It is but an instant. But in that instant lies all that life has for us. All the joy and sorrow, pain and pleasure. All the people we know and love. All the people we helped to create. All the things we do to make to make each day our own. All the little things we did in all the uncounted minutes of our lives. These are the things that count. These are the things that those of us who are still here remember.

You may remember me a friend of yours from St Joe’s. My fiance Marie and I visited you in South Philly and met your wife Marge and the baby, Richard Jr. sometime after graduation. Last time we saw each other if memory serves was at your bakery in South Jersey. At the time my family and I were living in Marlton. Woke up yesterday around 3am and for some reason was thinking about you. Rich you were one of the nicest most thoughtful and considerate guys I ever met and for you to be facing such a terrible situation tragedy is just unimaginable. I am praying that someone comes forward to solve this crime and gives you a chance to heal in the near future. Your dear friend Gary.

FBI Podcast: FBI Asking for Tips

Marge Petrone: Not to know what happened to him—every single day you go to bed with it, you wake up with it. It just gets worse, it just does not get any better.
Vito Roselli: No activity on either cell phone, no bank account activity, pretty much fell off the face of the Earth, along with the pickup truck.
