His five siblingsCaren Threshie Camp, of Alexandria, VA, Johnny Threshie of Westport, CT, Betsy Threshie Krobot of Bridgeport, CT, Charles Threshie of Bridgeport, CT and Kate Threshie Jasko of Madison, CT morn his death.
He was 66 years old and born in Galax, Virginia in 1955. Richard graduated from Greenwich High School in 1973. Richard was appropriately named after his grandfather, an MIT engineer graduate who contributed to the development of Cape Cod's renowned Beetle Cat boat. Richard was a Master Carpenter by trade and would build and rebuild homes from the ground up with learned skills from renowned master carpenters. He could also build and rebuild anything mechanical from cars & trucks to motorcycles and boats...and he did it all.
Absolutely, a remarkable man of innate abilities that were constructive in every aspect. He was a do-it-yourself guy...and he could do it all. A man's man. Yet, a sweetheart. He loved his big boy toys including motorboats, sail boats, motorcycles, mountain biking and was known to cuss at his father and brothers while chasing a little white ball around an 18-hole track.
Richard died in Manchester, Connecticut. He will be remembered by his family and friends on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at 10am in the First Congregational Church in Old Greenwich, Connecticut across from Binney Park.
In lieu of flowers the family would ask that contributions be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. https://alzfdn.org/
