Richard Leon Ticehurst, 69, of Colchester passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, due to complications of liver and kidney failure. He was surrounded by his wife, children and grandchildren at home. Richard was born on August 18, 1946, in Burlington, Vermont, to the son of the late Alfred Ticehurst and surving mother Theresa (Rocheleau)  Ticehurst. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. After returning, he started working in construction as a carpenter.

He met Joyce Hatin of Winooski, and they were married on December 16, 1967, almost 48 years. Survivors include his son Richard (Margie) Ticehurst of Plattsburgh, N.Y.; daughter Jennifer (Tony) Watson of Champlain, N.Y.; son Daniel Ticehurst and his finance, Anna-Kate Dulude, who lived with him; and grandchildren Lauryn, Evan, Richard, Riley and Mackenzie. He was also survived by a sister, Karen Ticehurst, and her husband, David Stone, of Colchester; brother-in-law Raymond (Sandra) Hatin of Fairfax; and niece Tania Bright of Rex, Ga., whom he was very close to.

He was a kind, gentle and caring person.  He loved flying his radio-controlled airplanes and being with his dogs. He will be deeply missed by everyone.

Arrangements were made by Lavigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Per Richard's wishes, there were no calling hours or burial.  He was cremated, and a memorial service was held on Monday, November 23, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be shared with the family at
