FRANKLIN — Richard J. Cornell, 71, of Franklin, went to his next big adventure on Aug. 10, 2014.

Dick served in the Navy from January 1961 until January 1965 as an electronics technician petty officer on the USS Conway (DD 570), a destroyer escort. He participated in (DEFCON3) the Cuban Blockade in 1962, and spent numerous months in the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

In late 1979 he took a position as general supervisor at National Power Products Inc. in Belmont. Dick was proud to serve on numerous boards of directors at Bluebeard's Castle of St. Thomas, U.S.Virgin Islands, for many years.

His parents and a son, Jay, predeceased him.
"I think I want to come back as a cloud on the warm afternoons of September, wave to me, I'll wave back. Life was one hell of a ride, adios." Those are Dick's exact words that he wanted included in his obituary.
"Dickie never hurt anyone; was there for his neighbors, friends and family when they needed a hand; took responsibility for his actions; and always upheld his obligations. He possessed integrity a quality that is hard to come by in this age," this was expressed by his wife, Lura.
"Always leave them better than you found them," words to live by from Dick as remembered by his good friend, Bill Guarente.
There will be no calling hours or services. Interment will be at a later date (to be determined) in State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen.
