Richard F. Kermenski
1950 ∼ 2020
In loving memory of Richard Kermenski, we are saddened to announce his passing on Wednesday, March 11th at 10:10 a.m., in his West Yarmouth, MA home with his family present.
Richie was born November 22, 1950 in Holyoke, Massachusetts to his family of Frank and Vera Kermenski and his sister, Barbara LeMay. He graduated from Chicopee Comprehensive High School in 1969. In 1984, while vacationing on Cape Cod, and unbeknownst to his family, he found a new position and convinced his family to move to Cape Cod permanently. He spent his career as an electrician and worked for Fuller Electric for over 30 years.
He leaves behind his wife, Ann Kermenski, who knew at 16 years old that she wanted to marry him, because he saved her little brother’s fish after the car came to a quick halt, two children Wayne Kermenski and Mary Silvestro, daughter in law Sara Kermenski, and four grandchildren Graham, Madeline, Jack and Levi.
Richie truly enjoyed being The Handyman for those in his life. He was always willing to share his skills with friends, family and people he just met. He had a curiosity of how things worked and had a knack for fixing things that, to most, appeared to be unrepairable. The lesson he taught us through his actions was that you can use your skills, not only to make a living, but as a way to show your love of those around you.
Donations in memory of Richie can be sent to: VNA Hospice 434 Route 134 South Dennis, MA 03660. A mass and celebration of life will be held at a later date.
