Veteran Youngstown policeman dies at his home

Published: Fri, June 4, 2010 @ 7:39 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Monday in St. Matthias Church for Patrolman Richard S. Gresh, 60, who had been a city police officer for 37 years, and who died Thursday in his home.

Police Chief Jimmy Hughes described Gresh as “an outstanding police officer” who had various beats throughout the city and received several departmental letters of commendation, one of them for the apprehension of a robbery suspect.

Gresh, who had been on sick leave since October, also was a captain in the Army National Guard, having been assigned to the Austintown-based 838th Military Police Company.

Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Kubina-Yuhasz Funeral Home and a half-hour before the Monday service in the church.

Rich was always a kind and unassuming type guy. I remember him as a hard worker who did his job and then went home. He was never surrounded by controversy. May he rest in peace with all the other officers who did their job and did it well. God bless you Rich-and thank you. Mrs. Ken Centorame
