Richard Del Tredici, 73, died at home with his family by his side Feb. 12, 2014, after a courageous and graceful battle with cancer. Born to Walter and Helen Del Tredici, he grew up in San Anselmo, CA, lived in Pleasanton for 50 years, and was a local high school teacher/principal for 38 years. Richard loved knowledge, travel, and all things Italian. With his gentle strength, kindness, smile, and helping hand, he was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. Family was most important to Richard: Judy, his wife of 50 years, children Lisa (John), Michelle (Rocco), and Aaron (John), brothers David of New York, Robert of Montreal, Peter of Boston, sister Ann of El Sobrante, and three treasured grandchildren, Lizzie, Marcus, and Calvin. He was also blessed to be surrounded by loving and supportive friends and extended family.
