Niantic - Richard William Green Sr., 74, of Lincoln St., died peacefully Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Richard was born on October 29, 1944, in New London, the son of Frederick and Viola Bedard Green. He married Karen Ann Caruso on September 23, 1967, in Niantic. He was preceded in death by his siblings Beverly, Patricia, Frederick, and Charles. Richard graduated from New London High School class of ‘64. He served in the National Guard and was employed for over 38 years as a First Class Shipfitter at Electric Boat. Upon retirement, he would fill his days playing on the golf course, meeting up for coffee with friends at McDonalds, trying his luck at the casino, and being the unofficial watch dog of Niantic as he made his daily rounds. Richard adoringly cared for his family’s pets and had an affection for wildlife especially squirrels. His greatest joy was his family; the love and closeness were apparent in everything he did and said. All who knew Richard would agree this is just a snapshot of the life of a man who is so much more than this. Richard is survived by his beloved wife Karen of 51 years, his son Richard and wife Melissa Green Jr. of Niantic, daughter Heather and husband Allen Larson of Niantic, son Shay Green of East Lyme, daughter Hope Green also of Niantic, and four cherished grandchildren Wade, Benjamin, Julia, and Amelia.

ADD A MEMORY

Though we have been miles apart I will miss my Uncle Richie deeply. He has been around my entire life and have always had a special place in my heart for him. One of the earliest memories I have is the thrill of riding on his bicycle handles when I was very young. Nowadays I would see the danger but at a very young age it was exciting. I was probably at the young age of 4 or 5. And the next most memorable was when he bought one of the 1 st mustang cars that came out. He came to the house to show it off to my mother (his sister) it was beautiful. Then a bit later if I recall the time frames correctly he introduced us to our then soon to be Aunt Karen. And so many.memories in between and after. All my love to you Uncle Richie, you will be sadly missed❤ Loretta
