Springfield - Richard Earl "Dick" Worster passed away Sunday, November 3, 2019 at the age of 82 with his family by his side.
Richard was born on September 26, 1937 in Ellsworth, Maine. After attending Lee Academy, Richard proudly served in the US Army's 11th Armored Calvary Regiment from 1956 to 1959. Following his military service, he worked for more than 35 years as a millwright. On December 20, 1960, he married the love of his life, Marjorie (Munson) Worster. They raised two kids, Kathy and Ken.
Richard was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He was well known as a Moxie-drinking, lobster-loving, German-speaking prankster that brought his family and friends much joy with his quick wit and sense of humor. He loved to hunt, fish, garden, coach and watch sports, especially when his kids or grandkids were involved. He defined the word present as no matter the activity, whether work or play, he was there, usually 30 minutes early. Having come from humble beginnings, he placed little importance on material possessions other than his love of vehicles which he babied and made last forever, like his 1998 Toyota Tacoma that is not allowed out of the garage in the winter.
Richard is survived by Marjorie, his wife of 58 years; his daughter Kathy; his son Ken and his wife Brenda; his sister Inez; and seven grandchildren, Alyssa, Devon, Jordan Michelle and her husband Wyatt, Matthew, Jordan Taylor, Kamryn, and Jade.
