It is with heavy hearts we share the news that the COO of Rancho Markets, and former AFS team member, Dick Harwood passed away on September 22. We are deeply saddened to hear of his passing. Dick has been with Rancho Markets for 12 years.

Dick was not only a member of the Rancho Markets’ family, but a dear friend to many at Associated Food Stores. He lit up every room he walked into with his charm, infectious humor and positivity. We’re honored to have known Dick and his kindness, warmth, and sincerity will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and love are with Dick’s family as they are processing this tragic event. Funeral information will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
