PLUM ISLAND, MA - On February 4, 2018, the angels came to bring our sweet brother to heaven.
Richard Guertin, age 59, was a resident of Plum Island. He left this world on Sunday morning, February 4, 2018, from Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth, N.H. He was born on December 16, 1958, in Haverhill, Mass., to the late Victor R. and Dorothy A. (Riley) Guertin. He graduated from Haverhill Public Schools. Richard was employed for many years at Career Resources in Haverhill. He was then employed by Opportunity Works, in Newburyport, and as an Assembler for Xentrex Electronics, in Newburyport.
Richard was quick to make friends with everyone he met. He was a bright light in this world. We are all very fortunate to have had him in our lives.
He enjoyed spending time and dancing at the Beachcoma, bowling with his friends, and vacationing in Florida. Above all he loved to socialize on the beach with his many friends, family, and his dog, Abby. Everyone that met Richard immediately fell in love with him. He will be sadly missed by all.
Richard is survived by his siblings, Dorothy Mugavero, and her husband, Richard, of Plum Island, Marialice Rumore, and her husband, James, of Methuen, Ronald Guertin, and his wife, Barbara, of Newburyport, Victor Guertin, and his wife, Barbara, of Haverhill, and Maureen Guertin, of Haverhill; as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Richard was predeceased by his brother, Robert Guertin.
