Obituary of Richard James Emanuel

Age 55, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at his home in Elmira. Rick worked for 33 years in the newspaper industry in Corning, Auburn, and Glens Falls. Rick had many titles, but the ones he loved most were husband, father and Pop-Pop. Rick made everyone he met feel valued, and his quick wit and sense of humor won him many friends.
