Richard Italiano, former chair and district manager of Community Board 4, passed away last week.

“Mr. Italiano’s passing leaves a great void in the heart of our community,” said Councilmember Julissa Ferreras. “He was a dedicated public servant who worked diligently and tirelessly in the community; this was truly his life work.”

“For decades, he served Queens with the utmost concern and passion, and with the belief that working together would always be the way to improve our community,” she continued. “To me, Richard was a close ally, friend, and constant advisor. Richard’s work will not go unrecognized and will live on in the work we all continue to do on matters in the neighborhoods close to his heart.”

Arrangements were handled by the Guida Funeral Home in Corona; funeral was held at St. Leo Parish.

“A tireless servant of our community, Richard was open and accessible,” said Senator Jose Peralta. “His spirit, leadership and friendship will be sorely missed.  I extend my heartfelt condolences to his loved ones and the many people whose lives he touched.”
