Obituary for Richard Donald Bird Sr.

Richard D. Bird, Sr., 87, of Enfield, beloved husband of Barbara (DuPont) Bird, entered into Eternal Rest at Evergreen Healthcare on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Son of the late Archibald and Marie (Stamm) Bird, he was born in Hartford on August 24, 1933. Richard was employed as a type-setter at the Hartford Times and later the Hartford Courant. He was a resident of Enfield for over 50 years. In his free time Richard enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting events, taking trips to Maine, and playing the lottery and other games of chance. He was also an avid sports fan and a history buff, especially World War II. Richard’s family would like to extend a special thank you to Kalee at Athena Home Health & Hospice for her kind and compassionate care of Richard.
In addition to his loving wife Barbara, Richard is survived by his children, Richard D. Bird, Jr. and his wife Dawn of Ellington, Karen M. Taylor and her husband David of Manchester, and Donna L. LaRose and her husband Gary of Enfield; 10 grandchildren, and a niece and nephew.
His family will receive relatives and friends from 10 - 11 am on Thursday October 1, 2020 at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd, Enfield. A funeral service will be celebrated for Richard at 11 am. Burial will follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Willimantic. In lieu of flowers, donations in Richard’s memory may be made to Athena Home Health & Hospice, 135 South Rd, Farmington, CT 06032, or the American School for the Deaf, 139 North Main Street, West Hartford, CT 06107 .
