Richard Raffaele, 84 loving father and grandfather, passed away on April 1, 2021 after a long battle with Leukemia. He has joined his wife Rosemarie, son Richie, and son-in-law Chris who predeceased him.
A long- time resident of New Rochelle, and previous owner of the Shore Road Café, many will remember him for his comical antics, his Halloween costumes, and his outgoing personality. He was described by many as a real “character”! He will be missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, or Calvary Hospital, in his memory.
A Funeral service will be held at Gate of Heaven Chapel 11am Tuesday April 6th 2021. Entombment to follow.
