Long-time manufacturers rep Joseph Di Rico passed away in December from a heart attack. He was 57. For more than 30 years, he worked for his father’s company, Art Di Rico Associates, where he last served as vice president, managing the company’s Florida-based clients. After Art Di Rico retired in 2015, Joseph worked as manager of a Leslie’s Swimming Pool Supplies location in Pompano Beach, Fla. “He was so dedicated to the industry,” Art Di Rico said. “And he was so well liked by everybody in the industry for so many years.” Besides his father, Di Rico is survived by three children, two sisters and a brother. Friends are invited to contribute in Di Rico’s name to the American Heart Association.
