He attended school in Bar Harbor graduating from Bar Harbor High School in 1955 and attended Farmington State College. Richard served in the US Army from 1958-1961. Dick was an avid gardener who beautified any outdoor spot he touched, his favorite being the grounds of Nadine and Dick’s first home in Town Hill. When not gardening, he spent many hours acquiring a huge coin and stamp collection.

Dick was greatly impacted as a result of needing to be evacuated from Bar Harbor with his family and ‘Teddy Bear’ at the time of the Bar Harbor fire in 1947. His bear survives to this day. Dick and Nadine would have celebrated 40 years of marriage on November 11, 2018. He was previously married to Donna Shakelford of Bangor.

He is survived by his beloved wife Nadine; sons, Ronald, Kenneth and James of Bangor; daughter, Marly Sachsman of Ellsworth; four grandchildren, Darith of AZ, Amanda of Salisbury Cove, Sarah of VT and Carlie of Winter Harbor; five great-grandchildren; brother, Roger and his daughter Jodie both of Sorrento. He was predeceased by his parents; sons, Paul Woodworth and George Sachsman.

A graveside service will be held 1:00PM, Friday, July 20, 2018 at Ledgelawn Cemetery, Bar Harbor
