Ritchie was married to his wife Patricia (Larkin) Gilmore for 60 years and they had 3 children. Ritchie loved family and if he had an audience he would entertain you for hours with his jokes and stories. A huge Boston sports fan, but by far the New England Patriots were his favorite, as a former season ticket holder.

Richard is survived by his loving wife Patricia, his children Richard Jr. of Tampa Florida, Patricia and her husband James of Abington, and Kenneth and his wife Sherrie of Concord NH.
