Tribute to Richard L. Battista

Richard L. Battista

July 31, 1935 – August 18, 2012

We are all saddened by the loss of one of Monique’s founders and an industry pioneer, Richard Battista who recently passed away after months of medical complications. Richard was a licensed plumber and always dreamed of opening his own bath showroom which he did in the 70′s. The only other showroom around at that time was Brickmans in Waltham, MA. Many years later, Richard and two of his brothers, Vinny and Bobby, founded Moniques as you know it today. Originally in Waltham, with an outlet in the Arsenal Mall Moniques was expanded into the current showroom in Watertown, MA. Richard always had a flair for design and loved making peoples remodeling dreams come true. He built a staff of customer oriented professionals who have earned the respect of the kitchen & bath community. Now his son Michael and daughter Michele, will continue to operate Moniques in the way that Richard planned and by doing so will assure his dream will continue.
