Richard Feliciano

August 24, 1969 — July 20, 2022

FELICIANO, RICHARD "RICHIE", 52, of Paterson died peacefully on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
"Richard was born at 2:10 am on August 24th, 1969 in St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson, NJ. He was called home to Our Lord on July 20th, 2022.

Richie leaves behind a large loud and proud Puerto Rican family. He is survived by his parents Radames and Carmen Maria Feliciano; his grandparents Genoveva Roman-Camacho and Jaime Camacho; his siblings, Carmen Lidia Feliciano, Emmanuel & wife Rebecca Feliciano; daughter Armani Lynn Feliciano and her mother Jennifer O'Reilly; his nieces & nephews, Valerie Hernandez, Crystal and husband Rafael Guerrero, Yvonne (Evey) Williams and husband Dorian Williams, Jaydon, Jennavieve and Jordan; and by his great nieces & nephews Ariana, Tavin, Camilo, Zachaios, Melody, and soon to arrive Eden.

For those of you who did not have the pleasure of meeting Richie, you should know he was a lively soul. He was a fierce protector, a passionate dreamer, and a resilient leader. He was a loving father, son, brother & uncle. When you were around him, there was lots of joy, mostly because you couldn't help but laugh once he started with his booming laughter, and because he genuinely loved and enjoyed the family and friends around him. He had a commanding presence that was felt as soon as he stepped into a room and, although intimidating from an outsider's perspective, his spirit was inviting and friendly. For those of us who got to witness the blessing of him becoming a father, we all were witnesses to the absolute joy he had when he finally held his first and only child Armani. He was an amazing and one-of-a-kind man, and our hearts will be filled with his love and memories.

We will miss the boom of his laugh, the volume of his conversations, and the all-encompassing random hugs he gave. We love you, Richie!

A dedication from his parents, "Richard, we will always have you in our hearts. We will never forget you. We love you and we will always carry you in our heart and memories. May you rest in eternal peace."
