I knew Rich as he was my brother Bruce's friend and fellow police officer in Sturbridge. The two were good friends and when in uniform looked a lot like each other. There were times when I thought Rich was Bruce and Bruce was Rich. Anne and her sons Jason and Justin, both Rich's sons are now a part of the Morris family as they are now Husband and wife. Brought together through the loss of a wonderful, loving, caring man. Bruce and Anne have a son together Jared. He was so very loved by many, and missed by even more. Justin recently had a son and named him Anthony Richard Dupre. Thank you for your service Rich.
