He was born October 20, 1953 in Utica, NY, a son of the late Chester and Lucy Kidd Capirci. He grew up in Marcy, NY and attended school in Whitesboro, NY. On August 28,1982, Richard married Patrice Carey at the St. Francis de Sales Church in Utica. He was a dedicated employee of Northland Associates in Syracuse, NY, where he met many lifelong friends, and retired from his position of Project Manager in July 2017.
Richard was a loving husband, father, brother and friend. He was a hard worker, selflessly dedicating his time and talents to those around him. Although humble and reserved, many of his best times were spent enjoying the company of close friends and family. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and spending time at the Hatch Lake family camp. No matter where he went, Richard never left a place without improving it.
Richard is survived by his wife of 36 years, Patrice Carey of Hamilton; daughters, Arianne Capirci of Hamilton; Brigitte Capirci of Columbus, OH; and Danielle Capirci of Syracuse; his son from a previous marriage, Richard Capirci, Jr. of Utica; his sister and brother-in-law, Libby and Michael Mills of Virginia Beach; and a niece, Lauren Mills.
