Obituary for Richard J. Kaminski

Richard Joseph Kaminski: Born Jan 20, 1929 - Jan 11, 2022

(Raised in Hartford, CT). Passed peacefully at his home in Simsbury, CT.
He is survived by his wife Elsie Lois Kaminski (Hall) (raised in Wallingford, CT) and his sons Dean, Kris, and Scott, along with their wives, six grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, his sister Beverly Arndt (Kaminski), and many nephews and nieces.

Rick was a Korean War era veteran of the United States Army. He was a graduate of New Haven State Teachers College (now Southern Connecticut State University). After his military service he taught in both Puerto Rico and at Berlin (CT) High School, where he also coached track and football.

Among the many leisure time activities he enjoyed were gardening, tennis, and bridge. He and his wife joined the Friendship Force hosting many international visitors and enjoying many trips around the world themselves. He also enjoyed summers spent at his beach home at Matunuck, RI and winters at his condo in South Carolina.

A special memory for the family will always be traveling out west in a VW camper bus where Rick, his wife, and three boys visited many states for their first time.
