Matthew Richards, son on Rochester mayor and Tay House Eagle Scout Tom Richards, passed away peacefully on September 23rd after a five-year battle with cancer.  You may read Matthew's obituary on the Democrat and Chronicle website.

Friends may call Thursday, September 26 from 4:00-8:00 pm at Anthony Funeral Chapel, 2305 Monroe Ave. A private celebration of Matthew's life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made on Matthews behalf to The Center for Youth, 905 Monroe Ave., Rochester, 14620.
