Merrimac, MA - Richard "Rick" Earley, 64, died at home on Monday February 25, 2019. He was born and raised in Lawrence, Mass., by Claire (Pekarski) and James J. Earley. He had been previously employed by the Lawrence Fire Department. Richard's true love and passion was the sea. He built his beloved fishing boat "Captain's Mistress" with his own hands. Nothing made him more at peace than being aboard the ship he loved while hoping for a wide open bite.
Richard is survived by his two nieces, Rebecca L. Kruschwitz and her husband Daniel of Plaistow, N.H. and Kelley E. Cullivan and her husband Matthew of Newton, N.H. Richard was predeceased by both parents as well as his sister Pamela J. Duggan and his brother-in-law Thomas J. Duggan Sr. He also leaves behind many close friends, in particular Robert Carbone of Salisbury, Mass. and many cousins.
Richard's ashes will be spread at sea during a private ceremony.
