Richard “Rich” Feeney, age 41, a life-long resident of Wilmington, died tragically on Tuesday, July 30, 2013.

Born on July 23, 1972, Rich was the cherished son of Antoinetta (D’Errico) Feeney of Wilmington and the late Robert Feeney, Sr.  Rich was raised in Wilmington and graduated with the class of 1992.

At the time of his death, Rich was employed at Straight Line Construction as wood finisher.  He loved his job and the people he worked with.  He will be remembered as a “fun loving” guy who loved to make people laugh.  Rich was also an avid sports fan and especially enjoyed watching the New England sports teams.

Rich leaves behind his beloved companion Katrina Ferrari, her children, Chantel Ferrari and Jessica Ferrari and her grandson, Damien Bizarria all of Wilmington.  Rich is also survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and his beloved dog, the late “Lady.”
