OBITUARY: Richard Morin

Below is an obituary from Cota Funeral Homes:

ANDOVER, MA — Richard Morin, of Andover, formerly of Wilmington, passed away due to a heart attack on Jan. 30.

He grew up in Reading, graduated from Reading High School in 1968. He then attended Bentley College for two years before taking two years off to serve in the United States Army before returning to Bentley and graduated in1974 with a degree in Management.

Richard started his career working for the government, first in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey and then at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford. After retirement from government service, Richard worked in the trucking industry at Wilsonart, where he would later retire after 20 years of dedicated service.

Richard leaves behind his loving family, including his wife of 48 years, Robin, his children: Richard Morin of Andover and Renee Morin of Derry, NH.

He also leaves his only grandchild Aidan Barbaro of Derry, NH, who truly was the pride and joy of his life. They spent endless time together, visiting favorite restaurants and taking vacations. They were indeed each other’s “best friend.”

Richard was the son of the late Mary and Arthur Morin. He will be dearly missed by his family, siblings, nieces and nephews, especially his nephew Jeffrey, as well as his only living aunt, Geneva Rigmonti of Wakefield. He left a lasting impression on many and will never be forgotten by his loved ones.

A private celebration of his life will be held in the spring.

Arrangements by the Cota Funeral Home, 335 Park St., North Reading.
