West Enfield - Our dad, Richard Earl Harding, 67, passed away at home on November 9, 2018. After overcoming several challenges in life, he succumbed to cancer. He was born December 6, 1950, to Lionel and Sylvia and grew up in Burlington, ME.
Dad was a man of simple means, but what he had he would have given to anyone who needed it. He loved his family, football (esp. the Patriots), playing cribbage, cooking, and chocolate, not necessarily in that order. He will be greatly missed by son and daughter-in-law, Ronald and Nickie, and her daughter, McKenzie; daughter, Angela; granddaughter, Jaide; grandpugs, Olive and Gracie, whom he loved visits from; brothers and sisters-in-law, Charles and Maryann, Donald and Beverly, Gary and Cindy, and Lora; several stepsiblings; former wife, Janet; special nephew, Andrew; many other nieces and nephews; many great friends; and cribbage buddies. In addition to his parents, Dad was predeceased by brothers, Phillip and Frank, and stepmother, Marie.
A gathering of family and friends will be held Wednesday, November 14 at 4 p.m. at the VFW in Burlington.
We wish to thank all of dad's neighbors (esp. Paul and Becky) for all they did for dad over the years and Beacon Hospice (Ashley, Brettanie, Pam, Angela, and esp. Avena) for their compassionate care of our dad over the last several months.
