Richard Pasquale Portigiani Sr.

November 14, 1957October 13, 2019

On Sunday, October 13, 2019, Richard Pasquale Portigiani, Sr., loving father to three children, entered eternal life at the age of 61. Richard was born on November 14, 1957 in West Islip, NY to Pasquale and Rose (Sciambia) Portigiani. He received a technical degree from Island Drafting & Technical Institute and worked as a field service technician at Siemens Nixdorf, Oce Printing, & NCR for 25+ years in New York, Virginia, and Florida.

Richard’s spirit is carried on by his children, Richard Pasquale (married to Carolyn Joy (Conforti)), Keith Joseph, and Heather Ann (whom went to be with the Lord on July 2, 1997).

Richard had a strong devotion to his family. He was a sentimental man, who loved being surrounded by his family and always made himself available to anyone who needed him. He had a passion for anything mechanical as he could fix anything you put in front of him and took much pride and joy in teaching and helping his children and their friends work on their cars. He taught them everything they know. His hobbies also included fishing and boating. Richard is known for his kind, helping, and compassionate spirit. He will always be with his family in love and spirit, and they will always carry a piece of him in their hearts. The hurt is temporary, but the love remains forever.

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at the Glen Haven Memorial Park at 2300 Temple Drive, Winter Park, FL 32789 at 1 o’clock p.m. The family will be having a gravesite memorial, so they are requesting that friends and family please withhold sending flowers.

As I previewed my memory of all my cousins above, I would like to add Linda and Joseph Giancontieri in the group, Richie's younger siblings. All eight of us youngsters had fun when families met for the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. We will miss you, cousin Richie. Jo from the Heartland of Missouri.

Cousin Richie P, not to be confused with cousin Richie C. - I beat you to this planet by 4 years, and that didn't stop us from having fun together with your sister Camille and brother Peter every time Jerry, Diane and I came to Long Island or whenever Aunt Rose and Uncle Joey came to Queens Village. Although we haven't seen each other in many years, your memory persists, and the legacy of your life and children tells me you were a wonderful, caring person with quite a skill for automotive maintenance.

Cousin Richie, You were born when I was about five years old. When we were kids, our families got together a lot, and my sisters and I always looked forward to those visits. The combined children from both of our clans must have sounded to our parents like a schoolyard at recess, but it was the joyful sound of kids who loved to play with each other. Too much time has gone by, and we scattered to the four winds. Still, I remember fondly the days when we were laughing children, and as I wish you well on your journey, I feel that those happy childhood memories are also eternal. Arrivederci.
