Richard was born in Syracuse, NY, on June 19, 1960, son of the late Richard Sr. and Beatrice (Wilcox) Darrow. He grew up in Constantia, NY and was a 1978 graduate of Paul V. Moore High School. He was employed by Schilling Forge in E. Syracuse; as a Forger (Hammer Operator) for the past 25 years. Richard-(Richie) was a good hard working man. His family meant the world to him. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do to make sure they were all safe and taken care of. He enjoyed the simple pleasures of life, the outdoors, fishing, football, collecting coins and the History Channel. His smile was the most contagious when with family and friends. He will forever leave a place in our hearts.
