A. Rex Riccardi - Death Notice, 1953

This is what you can find when you search on google.  This is my Mom-in-law's father.  He passed away when she was young.  He was First assistant to the head of the American Federation of Musicians.

This is from Billboard Magazine.


  1. How sad that he died so young! I didn't see the cause. Do you know what happened?

    Very cool though...a music union! Rock on (pun intended!) :)

  2. Cherie, I found out that he died from cancer. He smoked a pipe (constantly) and got mouth cancer.
