Richard "Dick" T. Farnsworth passed away peacefully at his home after a prolonged illness. Dick was a life-long Middletown native and worked as a train engineer for Armco for 30 years. He served as a sergeant in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. He loved life and was well known around Middletown due to all of his volunteer work donating blood, doing Meals-On-Wheels, working the voting booths, being on the Mental Health Board and countless other activities. He was an avid writer contributing many letters-to -the-editor to the Middletown Journal. He loved reading, writing, walking around town, playing tennis, traveling and being with his family. Dick is preceded in death by his parents,
Lurline (Stallsmith) Farnsworth and Orrin Farnsworth. He leaves his loving wife of 60 years, Shirley A. (Fielder)
Farnsworth; his youngest daughter, Lanie Farnsworth; his
oldest daughter, Lettie (Greg) Harvey; his grandson, Jordan Harvey and great-grandson, Dravyn Alexander; his sister, Patty Lampe; 5 nieces and 1 nephew. In lieu of flowers, the
Farnsworths would like donations made to Hospice of
Middletown and the Middletown Public Library.
