Richard “Dick” Santo

Greece:  Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at age 75 went home to be with his parents, Frank and Marion Cangialosi Santo; brothers, Len and Phil Santo.  Dick is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Susan Santo; devoted children, Nichole Santo, Robert (Heather) Winch and Carrie Martineaou; grandchildren, Alexis Winch, Nickolas Winch, Elijah Santo; Marion Santo and Connor Martineau; great-grandson, Mitchell Turnipseed; brother, Robert (Helen) Santo.
Dick lived a full and happy life with his wife Sue.  They traveled, golfed and spent time on their boat and above all spent cherished time with their children and grandchildren.  Dick was the first to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.  His goodness, compassion and love for life brought joy to all who knew him.  There’s a very special angel in heaven today.
