He coached for many years in a variety of sports, was committed to advancing youth recreation in Ossining and loved the parks. As chair of the RAB he ran meetings that were efficacious and yet did so with a wonderful sense of humor. On Saturday October 27th, at 1:30 pm, members of the Recreation Advisory Board will be holding a ceremony in Richard Wishnie Park to dedicate a plaque in his memory.
