Black Tie International:  Richard Cosby


Richard Cosby, Beloved Father

Quiet Hero



Dear Friends ,
I wanted to make sure you knew the very sad news that my beloved father Richard passed away on June 25th.
He had been battling advanced cancer the past two years, and was very sick especially these past three months, spending his final weeks in an ICU unit in Alexandria, VA. 
Fortunately, I was able to be with him every day the past few weeks, and did my shows from the DC bureau. I was also with him when he passed away, and I had just told him how his legacy will live on forever through the
bestselling book my dad and I did together recently, and how much I loved him. 
In his final weeks, we hung a large book poster in his room, and many people in the hospital were already familiar with the emotional story and had the book for both of us to sign. They had such admiration for my father and what he endured, and doctors were doing all they could do to save him. Some even wept when he died, as they too were praying for a miracle, knowing this was a man who had beaten overwhelming odds before.
I'll send more details soon, but funeral services will take place August 3rd at 3pm at Blessed Sacrament Church at 1427 Braddock Road in Alexandria, VA, just outside Washington DC, with a reception to follow nearby. It'd be wonderful if you could come.  We will include some Polish military honors in the service, so I hope it's a great tribute to an amazing man and terrific father.
Below is a link to the funeral home's obituary. Should you wish, in lieu of flowers, please kindly make a donation in my father's name Richard Cosby to
his favorite charity, the USO, which helps wounded troops and their families through their programs. As many of you know, my father escaped from a Nazi
POW camp in WWII and was rescued by US forces. My dad was always grateful to the US military and so proud of his rich Polish heritage.
Memorial Service for Richard Cosby  -

Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers as we miss him deeply.
