Richard E. Augustus, of Enfield, CT, passed away on September 27, 2019, peacefully surrounded by his wife and family.

Richard was born on September 16, 1944 in Hartford, CT to Helen and Richard Augustus, Sr. Richard served in the US Navy from July 1964 to 1968. For his service he was recognized with two awards: Connecticut Wartime Veterans Service Medal and a National Defense Medal. His working career spanned the gamut from working the soda counter at the local drug store in his high school days to Northeast Utilities where he spent 35 and a half years primarily as a Distribution System Operator. Richard retired in 2004.

Richard is survived by his wife Lynn, whom he married on May 19, 1995. He is also survived by his son Steven and wife Charlotte, his son John, and his daughter Alison Pachecano and her husband Ramiro, four grandchildren - Samantha, Alex, Reilly and Ivey, and his brother Jim and wife Deborah. He is also survived by his mother-in-Law Marilyn Lachat, brothers-in-Law Robert Barstis and his wife Phylis, Jeff Barstis and Jeffrey Ivey. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Richard is predeceased by his first wife Lynn.

Richard was one of those people that was always prepared and planned ahead. He was the most dependable person you could ever meet and you could always count on him to be there if you needed him. In their retirement, Richard and Lynn loved to travel and had many adventures together and with friends.

Richard’s love for his wife, children and grandkids was immeasurable and he will be greatly missed.

Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at the Bassinger & Dowd Funeral Home, 37 Gardner St., East Windsor, CT.

I had the pleasure of working with Dick for 30 years when he was a dispatcher and I an electrician for what is now Eversource. That deep, calm voice was always nice to here when working trouble day or night. I'll always remember the calls from my truck radio answered by " light back". R.I.P Dick.

Auggie,as we affectionately called him,was my shipmate for 3 years aboard the U S S Farragut (DLG-6). He was a very good friend
whose friendship I have cherished since 1966. He even took me home where I met his mom and enjoyed her hospitality. After we we left the Navy,we corresponded by computer and by phone.I shall miss his dry humor and will forever remember our time we served together in the navy.
Mine and Cheryl's prayers and heart-felt condolences are extended to Lynn and all of his family.
