Condolence & Memory Journal


Uncle Ritchard was a wonderful person to his nephew Mac.He took him under his wing like a father figure, as a dear uncle, and friend . His clear headed solid advice for Mac was always out of his deep love and concerns.We loved how Uncle Ritchie always ended each conversation no matter how serious with a funny joke to laugh with. Many, many fond holiday memories together with our dear Uncle Ritch. With love, we will always remember you.

Richard was a remarkable brilliant shining personality, with great humor; intellectually curious about everything under the stars. He was the finest professor my wife and I ever had. Richard touched the lives of so many students and people around him and made major contributions to West Chester University, it's faculty, and students. No doubt the smartest mind I have ever met, and having a smile that lighted up any room..My wife, Rose, and I extend our deepest sympathies to family..Few people pass thru this life like Dr. Richard Branton...Barry & Rose Dozor

I remember sharing good times with Richard in Philly, dining and enjoying the tour of some beautiful and historic buildings there. A quick mind, a congenial, handsome will be missed, Richard.
