Obituary

Richard (Dick) Black, 85, of Poughquag and previously of Yorktown Heights and Croton Falls, died on May 4, 2020.

Born on April 19, 1935 in New York, Richard was the son of Douglas and Alice (Gleason) Black. He worked as a plumber for Local 21 Plumbers Union in White Plains for 38 years until his retirement in 1997.

Richard proudly served our country in the United States Navy during the Korean War. He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Yorktown Heights; member of Sons of Norway, Troll Lodge in Croton Falls; Scout Master in Croton Falls for Boy Scouts; and a volunteer and life member of the Croton Falls Fire Dept. for 54 years. Among these great accomplishments, he will be most remembered for his humor, generosity and love for his family. Richard had a remarkable talent for creating friendships wherever he went. Most of all, he enjoyed his time with his Lilli - from traveling the world to holding hands at lunch. Their love will endure always.

Survivors include his fiancé, Lilli Nilssen; his children, Tracy Russell of Mahopac, Katharine Garlepp and her husband John of Woodstock, GA; his stepdaughter, Lisa Berardis and her husband Anthony of New Fairfield, CT; his 10 grandchildren; his 7 great grandchildren; his sister-in-law Maryann Black of St. Augustine, FL; his nephew, Scott Black of St. Augustine, FL; and his son-in-law, Clifford Russell of Port Chester; and daughter-in-law Virginia Carney of Saugerties. Richard was predeceased by his son Billy Black in 1984; his brother, James Black in 1997; and his stepson, Marc Nilssen in 2011.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 11:30am at St. Columba Church, 835 Route 82, Hopewell Junction followed by burial in St. Denis Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to American Heart Association or a charity of your choice.
