Obituary for Richard E. Greb

May 23, 1954 - March 5, 2018
Blue Bell, Pennsylvania | Age 63


Richard E. Greb of Blue Bell passed away suddenly on March 5, 2018 at the age of 63. Born on May 23, 1954 in Ramsey, NJ, he was the son of the late Edwin Alfred and Jeanne Marie (Elias) Greb. Rick leaves behind his beloved family; wife of 44 years Janet (DeFrancesco), son Kenneth, daughter-in-law Erica, daughter Christine, and grandchildren Liam and Lila.

Rick is also survived by his sister Susan Golding, brothers Stephen, Thomas (Rose), sister-in-law Maureen and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Christopher Greb.

Rick was a kind, generous and fun-loving man who was fortunate to have so many people call him "friend". He enjoyed hosting picnics, organizing horseshoe and golf tournaments, and was a devoted Eagles, Phillies and Villanova basketball fan. He loved gathering together family and friends, often acting as "DJ Ricky". An avid traveler, he enjoyed time on the beaches of Florida or at his summer home in Sea Isle City.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Rick's joyous life on Friday, March 9 at St. Helena Church, 1489 DeKalb Pike in Blue Bell, from 9 - 11 AM, with his Funeral Mass immediately to follow. Interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, an organization that Rick supported in honor of friends and family.
