Calling hours will be held Thursday for Rochester Mayor Tom Richards son Matthew, who died last week after a long battle with cancer.
According to the obituary on the Anthony Funeral and Cremation Chapel's website, Matthew Richards, 37, fought cancer for five years.
He leaves behind his wife Jill and two sons. He's also survived by his parents, Tom and Betty Richards.
Calling hours will be held for friends this afternoon from 4-8 p.m. at the funeral chapel on Monroe Avenue.
The family is asking in lieu of flowers, that donations be made in Matthew's memory to The Center for Youth at 905 Monroe Avenue in Rochester 14620.
Mayor Richards announced last week he would end his campaign for re-election citing a family health matter.
