Richard Tognetti, 78 years old, passed away on January 22, 2024, at his home in Fortuna, California.
Rich was born and raised in Half Moon Bay, CA, and graduated from HMB High School in 1963. He went on to become a diesel mechanic working in the South San Francisco area for 35 years.
Everyone who knew Rich knew he was an avid duck hunter and fisherman. He also enjoyed going to car shows, rebuilding hot rods, camping, bowling, traveling, gardening, and working on projects, never letting any grass grow under his feet.
Rich was a loving husband, father, friend, and all-around great guy with a great sense of humor. He would tell crazy funny stories that made you laugh so hard you cried and there was never a dull moment in his presence.
Rich is preceded in death by his parents, Elia and Rose Tognetti. His sisters, Gloria Bettencourt and Yolanda DalPorto. His brother-in-law, Bruno DalPorto. His niece, JoAnne Nerli, and granddaughter, Mikaila Lucido.
Rich is survived by his wife, Chris Tognetti. His daughter, Linda Taylor (TJ). His son, Eddy Lucido, and stepsons, Peter and Matthew Rice. His grandchildren, Travis Taylor, Tiffinny Hoisington (Tate), Carina Jackson (Brad), and Dante, Dominic, and Dio Lucido. His great-grandchildren, Jayden and Lacey Taylor and Quintin and Kolby Hoisington. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
In accordance with his wishes, no services are planned.
Donations can be made to Ducks Unlimited in Rich’s memory.
