Along with his wife Patricia, Richard is survived by four children, Alexander (22), Bianca (21), Ava (20), and Gabriel LaBella (16) of Middletown, CT; two brothers and sisters-in-laws, Louis and Nancy LaBella of Old Saybrook, CT, and Thomas and Kathy LaBella of Middletown, CT; and many nieces and nephews. Rich was born in Middletown, CT, son of the late, Louis and Connie (D’Aquila) LaBella. He was an avid Yankees, Giants, and Juventus fan, and could always be found watching any sport (even golf!) in his free time.

He was a communicant of Saint Mary of Czestochowa Church. He spent many years as a soccer and softball coach for the leagues in Middletown when his children were younger. The greatest legacy Rich leaves behind is his gift to light up every room with his smile, always joking around and making everyone around him laugh.
