Richard Betz Jr. entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, January 25, 2023.  Born October 18, 1975, in Jersey City, he was the son of Linda Betz and the late Richard Betz Sr.  A skilled carpenter by trade, Richard worked at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. 

From a young age, Richard expressed his gift for drawing and sketching through his vibrant works of art.  His creativity and unending drive continued to flourish over the years as he gravitated toward music and taught himself how to play the acoustic guitar.  Richard also found great meaning and fulfillment in listening to the tunes of his favorite music artists, John Lennon, and the Beatles.  He appreciated the outdoors and trips to Central Park in New York City where he found peace and tranquility while enjoying the scenic views.  

Richard will forever be missed but his memory extends far and wide as he will remain in the hearts of his family for all eternity. 

Cherished son of Linda Betz (nee Chopki) dearest brother of Margaret Marlowe (Scott) and Paul Betz; proud uncle to his adored nephews, Paul and Jordan Betz, and Cristian Marlowe. 

Cremation was private.

Remember Me

Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy remain.
Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.

And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.

Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.
