Rich Tenaglia


Rich Tenaglia is a native of Columbus, Ohio, a metallurgical engineer, having spent his career developing innovative ways to process metals.

For relaxation, he enjoys playing trombone in the Scioto Valley Brass and Percussion Company. A member of The Ohio State University Marching Band Alumni, he was profoundly moved and honored by the opportunity to perform with TBDBITL alumni at the D-Day ceremonies at the Brittany American Cemetery and the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial overlooking Omaha Beach.

Rich has a spiritual passion for the night sky and a serious love of sunrises, sunsets, and rainbows. He hopes to continue creative writing in retirement.
