LISBON FALLS – Richard A. Chattick Sr. was relieved of all earthly encumbrances on Monday May 20, 2019, and left on the most magnificent journey of his life.

Rich was born in Manchester N.H. on March 20, 1940, and spent most of his childhood on the Annis farm in Suncook, N.H. As a young teen, Rich moved with his family to Lisbon Falls, where Rich met the young girl who would be his partner for 61 years, Ann Hart.

Driven to find a higher purpose in life, Rich enlisted in the Air Force, and spent 20 years in the service of his country. It was during a tour in Viet-Nam, that Rich was nominated for a Bronze Star.

All the traveling with the service did not quench the passion that Rich had for interacting with people. The U.S. Postal Service enabled Rich to serve the public, and to converse with nearly any person who he happened to encounter. Rich could be seen chugging like a freight train down the sidewalks of Brunswick with the trailing smoke of his smoldering cigar lofting over his shoulder. Many people will read this and remember a day when they “shot the breeze” with the friendly neighborhood mailman.

Rich is survived by his loving wife, Ann; and their three children, JoAnn, Ricky, and Jessie. Included are Rich’s sisters, Mary, Darlene and Sharon, along with brothers, Mike, Kevin and Earl. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren. No list would be complete without mentioning Rich’s cousin and best friend, Woody.

Good-bye from everyone Dad…thank you for being part of our lives.

Per Richard’s request, there will be no services.
