March 2019

Richard Samuel Wanderman of Warren, CT died March 2, 2019 at Danbury Hospital. Born in Hicksville, NY, Richard completed an MFA at University of Oregon where he later taught art and design. A man of varied interests, Richard successfully pursued careers in art, technology and education. He was an avid outdoorsman and maintained sections of the Appalachian Trail with Connecticut AMC and Mass AMC. He is survived by his wife, Anne Latham Wanderman, two stepdaughters: Jessica Darling and Bonnie Darling and granddaughter, Erin Shea. A gathering to celebrate his life will be planned for the spring.

The immediate family wishes to acknowledge the outpouring of support and love from the wider family and a cornucopia of wonderful friends. As you followed Richard through his illness and many setbacks, your emails and texts were a constant flow of love and support. Every one of them was read to him. We cried. We laughed. We mourned. Many of you gave freely of time, energy, and substantial help. Richard was surprised and then deeply moved by your responses to his illness. A gathering to celebrate his contributions to our lives will be planned for the spring.

Family and friends will be grateful for the sharing of your sentiments and stories here on this blog.
