Add My Condolences

When God created Rich Quigley the mold was destroyed! A "one of kind guy", that would help out anyone, anytime, anyplace. A true character. We were fellow board members of the Junod Lodge for over 40 years & it was my honor & privilege to know him and to be his friend. I will truly miss him. My condolences to Pat & the entire Quigley family

From the very first time I met Rich as a guest at a Jim Junod Lodge meeting, he was always a welcoming & energetic advocate for the Lodge and its charitable endeavors. There were a few times over the years where times were rough and we considered closing up shop, but Rich was always committed to keeping the Lodge solvent with various fundraisers & fresh ideas. Thanks in part to Rich's determination, the Lodge has persevered and continues to serve our community into our 50th year. We in the Lodge owe Rich a great debt of gratitude for helping us carry out our charitable efforts and for always reminding us to care for those in need within our community. God bless & rest in peace, Rich.

Rich (Quiggles)graduated me from a Flyers Playoff game with Washington to a Jim Junod meeting at the Andalusia VFW in 1995 and has been my inspiration ever since. He was ALWAYS dedicated to the Lodge and loved his Junod Family and the Junod Fishing Trips, (I'll never forget our detour from one trip). We are all going to miss you my friend, GOD BLESS.

For many years, Rich was a mainstay of the Jim Junod Lodge. Whether it was selling our many chances & sports pools, finding people to help us with our various projects or bringing the case of someone who needed our help, Rich was front & center. We will miss our brother. May he rest in peace.
