On Monday 3/23/2020, loving husband, and father of six, Richard C. Anthony (Dick) passed away in his home in Hollis, NH at the age of 84.
Dick was born on December 27, 1935 in Salem MA to Ralph W. and Ruth A. Anthony. He was their only child. He graduated from Salem High School and attended classes at Northeastern University before enlisting in the Army Reserves.
Dick had an entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. He owned a camera shop with his father where they sold camera equipment and processed pictures. He operated an oil company. He worked for 30 years as an Electrical Engineer where he services large equipment like ski lifts or a printing press. After beating throat cancer, he reinvented himself as a computer programmer. He dedicated many years of his life to working with the American Cancer Society and won many awards for the work he did to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking cigarettes. He spoke at schools and was featured in commercials that have been shown nationwide. Although he technically retired in 2005, he continued to work to this day for Baystate Flowers in Wilmington, MA
Dick married the love of his life, Lorna J. (Chard) Anthony on October 19, 1963. Over their 56 years of marriage, they raised six children.
Dick has many interests, all of which involved spending time with his family. Most days you would find him out on the ocean fishing, behind the lens of the newest camera or video camera, taking us for rides through the mountains on his motorcycle, or camping. He was a HAM Radio enthusiast as well as a member of the Free Masons. He was known for both his huge heart, and his huge smile.
Dick is survived by his wife Lorna; his six children and their spouses – Linda Thibodeau, April and Kevin McManus, Richard Anthony, Jr., David and Bethany Anthony, Lisa and Daniel Smith and Susan and Tony D’Alessandro; as well as 10 adored grandchildren, and one great-grandson.
Services: A private Celebration of Life will be held by his family in the Spring. Those who wish to make a memorial contribution can do so with the American Cancer Society, P.O Box 22478 Oklahoma City, OK 73123, or visit them online at The Davis Funeral Home, 1 Lock St. Nashua, NH. 03060 has been placed in charge of arrangements. (603)883-3401 “ONE MEMORY LIGHTS ANOTHER.”

So many memories, from the best belly flop, to watching football together and you trying to teach me to say "Tatupu". But one of my favorite memories was riding on the Gold Wing up through the mountains when I was little. I will miss your corny jokes and crazy faces - you'd do anything to make me smile, and it always worked. I'll love you always.

Always had fun going with you camping. Showing me the camper and how to set it up, and having the dogs playing was fun! I will miss you very much!

Always enjoyed our talks. You always shared a smile and a joke as you reminisced about family, friends and your adventures. Thank you for taking me into your family and creating the love of my life. May you rest in peace.

One of my favorite childhood activities was when he would take us for a bike ride and teach us bicycle safety in the school yard. 😊. When I got older we would ride together in various charity fund raisers.
Love you Dad!
