Obituary of Richard A. Goldrick

Richard (Randy) A. Goldrick, age 88, of Southport, CT, beloved husband of Cynthia (Cynnie) Bone Goldrick of 65 years, passed away on Saturday, March 12, 2022.

Born and raised in Rhode Island, son of the late James and Mary Reardon Goldrick, Randy graduated from La Salle Academy and the University of Connecticut, class of 1956. He then served his country in the United States Army, stationed in Germany until 1958.

Randy’s sales career began with the Edwards Co. and then with Harvey Hubbell Co. until 1969.  Randy spent 28 years with the National Association of Electrical Distributors ultimately ascending to president, and retiring in 1996.  Retirement, however, did not suit Randy and another interest was sparked. Randy helped launch the Vineyard Vines Golf Pro Shop Division where he worked until the very day he passed.  

Randy was an avid golfer, proudly having teed it up in all 50 states. He was a longtime member of The Fairfield Beach Club and Brooklawn Country Club, where he served in a variety of roles, including president. Randy was a dedicated volunteer and fundraiser for a number of veterans organizations and Mercy Learning Center. He was a huge fan of UCONN Women's basketball and he and Cynnie had the privilege of attending a number of Final Four Championships. The New York Yankees have lost a longtime, devoted fan. Randy was a hardworking man of integrity and decency.  

Ultimately, his world revolved around his beloved family. Randy cherished Cynnie, they traveled widely and enjoyed life to the fullest. As the father of four girls, Randy was an amazing "girl dad." He will be greatly missed. 

Randy is survived by Cynnie, and their daughters, Pamela Koss, (Jud), of Southport, CT, Patti Gormley, (Larry), of Rye, NH, Jamie Reynolds, (Stephen), of Amelia Island, FL, and Jenny Fahrman, (Keith), of Long Valley, NJ; 14 grandchildren; and two great grandchildren.
