A. John (Jack) Richichi, age 86, of West Chester, PA passed away on Tuesday, April 25, 2023. Born August 17, 1936 in Jersey City, NJ, he was the son of the late Rocco Richichi and the late Marie Nevins Richichi.
Jack was a proud St. John’s University graduate and enjoyed his career as a financial analyst. While Jack lived in West Chester since 2021, he called New York home for the majority of his life and spent 25 winters in Florida. No matter where Jack was living, he remained a loyal NY Yankees fan. He enjoyed speaking in Op, clamming, bocce, wine making, playing card games (including Pinochle, Tenafly, and P.I.G.), baking, gardening, and fishing. Jack faithfully served as a lector at Sunday Mass for most of his adult life.

Jack was Grandpa to seven grandchildren: Patrick (Junella), Maggie, Emily (Jacob), Claire, Ben, Evelyn, and Riley, and great-grandchild Liam. Also surviving are many relatives and lifelong friends who have impacted Jack throughout his life.
