Richard Dunphey Obituary

Richard Stuart Dunphey, 78 of Nobleboro, passed away at his home on the evening of November 6, 2021 from ALS.  Born in Bangor on December 29, 1942, he was the son of Morris and Ruth (Hall) Dunphey.

After graduating from Bangor High, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served honorably, before retiring after 22 years.  After leaving the Navy, he worked for several area businesses throughout Lincoln County.  He married Susan Hatch and they had a daughter, Kimberly and a son, Justin.

Dick and Susan enjoyed hiking Baxter State Park, white water rafting and spending time on Hermit Island for 30 years.

He and the Morgner crew canoed the Alagash, and Dick enjoyed fishing trips for salmon on Lake Ontario with Bill and Erick Morgner and Pat Willet.  He also took many trips to Eustis to fly fish Alder Stream with Pete and John Shorey.  He also loved playing Pickleball at the Y with friends.

He leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Susan; daughter, Kimberly and husband Dan; son, Justin and wife Meg; and Hooie the wonder dog.  He also leaves grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; brother-in-law, Richard Hatch, brother-in-law, Mark Hatch and wife Joan; and sister-in-law, Becca Hinck and husband Chris.
