Richard was loved by everyone around him. His warm heart and gentle nature were the gifts he carried throughout his life and gave to others daily. His love for his wife was immeasurable. Best friends Terri and Richard worked side by side until they retired and moved to Michigan with their pups Jojo and Gizmo, and later Romeo and Bolo. Richard loved creating beauty in his yard where he and Terri and their pups spent many afternoons and evenings. One of his great joys was also living near the water. In Grand Haven, he and his wife loved the lake. Before moving to Michigan, they lived in Connecticut at the ocean. Richard loved walking his dogs near the lighthouse in Stonington Borough.
A military memorial service and celebration of Richard’s life will be held in Stonington, Conn., in late summer or early fall. All are welcome to share a memory online at www.sytsemafh.com.
