We are shocked and deeply saddened to announce the passing of Richard Adam Moskovitz on March 8, 2022. He will be deeply missed by his loving partner, Donna Bouchard, his beloved children, Anna Nicole and Ryan Jacob (R.J.), two brothers, Mark (Kathy Mannes) and David Moskovitz (Susan Jacobson), three nieces and nephew, and many coworkers and friends. Richard loved family and he loved food and was passionate about the power of food to bring people together and create lasting memories. A creative problem solver, he faced challenges with tenacity, humor, optimism, and humility. Richard was an unrelenting mentor to all and supported countless colleagues throughout his life. He was exceedingly proud of his children and radiated with love whenever he spoke of Anna and R.J. and his wonderful partner Donna and the life they were creating together. His time with all of us was too short.
His death came unexpectedly at a time when he was successful operating a destination dining experience at Brick Farm Tavern, featuring and supporting sustainable farming producers and providers in the Hopewell, NJ region. During his career, he led and inspired individuals and teams across the hospitality industry, including venues in ships, museums, ranches, and parks. Richard was empathetic and entrepreneurial. Richard loved people. Richard cared. From successfully and lovingly hosting huge parties to whipping up a favorite bouillabaisse in his brother’s kitchen, Richard embraced the potential for food and celebration to bring us all together. We will feel his presence the next time we break bread together or make a toast. We will forever miss his voice, his smile, his teddy bear hugs. His family and friends invite those who remember Richard to support Trinity Counseling Service (TCS) Princeton, NJ. http://trinitycounseling.org/
