Richard Colombotti

June 18, 1955 — July 27, 2022

He has lost his life due to a rare form of blood cancer. Ricks wishes is that everyone get tested anytime your body tells you anything is wrong and do yearly checkups for cancer, while his cancer was very rare and effects only 1 in 10 million, there are easily detected cancers that can be found and stopped with regular screenings.
