YMCA greeter Dick Bernacchi

The Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA says goodbye to their 84-year-old greeter Dick Bernacchi, as he retires.

Bernacchi spent the last 10 years of his live serving the members of the YMCA by seeing them through the door with his welcoming smile.

Despite his love for his job, Bernacchi is retiring in order to move to Colorado to be closer to his family.

The YMCA team is happy for his success and wishes him well.
