Richard “Dick” Ugolini, 66, passed away peacefully after a brief battle with cancer.

He leaves behind his two sons, Christopher Ugolini of Sanford, FL, and Cameron Ugolini of Londonderry, NH; mother to their children, Virginia Ugolini; brothers Paul Ugolini and Michael Ugolini, and sister Elizabeth Channing; He was pre-deceased by his father, Marino Ugolini, and mother Ines Saccares. In addition to family, Richard parted with Laurie Curran, a very loving longtime girlfriend.

Richard was born and raised in Springfield, MA. He attended Western New England College, where he earned degrees in Electrical Engineering, and Business Management.

He worked for numerous primary-defense contractors, including: L3 KEO (Kollmorgen Corporation), Lockheed Martin Corporation, BAE Systems, and United Technologies Corporation. Following his retirement, Richard made a home on Cape Cod and used his knowledge and experience to teach at Cape Cod Community College part time.

In addition to his work, Richard enjoyed sailing, traveling, wood-working, skiing, golfing, watching movies, and going to the beach with friends and family. He was never one to refuse helping others if they needed and would pass his knowledge on whenever given the chance. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A special thank you to his doctors and caretakers at Cape Cod Hospital.

There is no other place where he enjoyed spending his time more than the Cape, and so per his request, Richard will be buried at the Dennis Oak Ridge Cemetery of South Dennis, MA.

There will be a gathering of family and friends at the Doane, Beal & Ames Funeral Home in South Dennis, MA from 11:00 AM – 1:00PM on Saturday, October 13th. A brief memorial service will begin at 1:00 PM, followed by a burial ceremony at the Dennis Oak Ridge Cemetery.

A sweet friend from high school! I remember him as a gentle man and as a gentleman, and it looks like the rest of his life reflected the same. I’m so sorry for your considerable loss and you will be in my thoughts and prayers! “Dickie” fly high!

I am so sorry to hear of Dick's passing. While we had not seen each other in years, we kept in contact through FaceBook and cards. It was obvious to me he enjoyed life and his family and friends. May your memories be fond and often! I still make his "Cherry Nut Squares". I will keep him in my prayers. Rest In Peace. Joanie Griffin Kavanagh, Springfield, MA
