It is with great sadness that the family and friends of Richard Saitz remember his passing. He was an amazing man who made a lasting impact on all those he encountered during his life. This obituary is a tribute to his life, one that was filled with love, laughter and joy for all those around him.
Richard was born in Brooklyn, New York on October 15th, 1953. He graduated from Brooklyn College in 1975 with a degree in business administration and finance. After college, he began working as an accountant at Ernst & Young LLP where he rose to become partner and head of their tax department. His success allowed him to build a wonderful life for himself and his family.
In addition to being a successful businessman, Richard also had a deep commitment to giving back to his community. He served as treasurer for several local charities including the United Way and the Animal Rescue League. For many years he also volunteered as a Big Brother mentor at the YMCA where he would spend time helping young people get on the right track by providing mentorship and advice whenever needed.
Richard was also known for being an avid sports fan, especially when it came to baseball and football.

His passion for sports was shared by his children whom he coached and supported through various youth leagues over the years.
