Richard Wentworth II Obituary
Richard Ricky Benson Wentworth II, age 55, of Brockton, died March 4, 2013, at the West Roxbury VA Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Ricky was the son of Eleanor (Jones) of Hyde Park and Richard Dick Wentworth of Roxbury. He was born Aug. 21, 1957, at Boston City Hospital, and grew up in the city of Brockton. He graduated from Brockton High School in 1975 where he was El Presidente of the cross country track team. Amongst his many accomplishments, Ricky served in the U.S. Navy in Naval Intelligence as a radioman stationed in Norfolk, Va. He married a lovely lady, was active in several churches and was a dedicated youth group leader and an accomplished software engineer. After an accident in 1983, Ricky lived life in the body of a quadriplegic but with a truly inspiring will to live an active productive life. He enjoyed a unique sense of humor, was extremely intelligent, truly loved people, ministered his life lessons whenever a soul needed guidance or comfort, and was generous to all. His road through life touched many souls. He was a resident at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Brockton, where he was a patient advocate and fortunate to have made many friends, some who have passed, and may be in his company now. He is survived by his wife, Margaret Peggy (Sibley) Wentworth of Mansfield; daughter, Kathryn Greenfield of Franklin; grandson, Jack Greenfield; his mother and father, Eleanor and Richard Wentworth; sisters, Dianna Hauf, of Windham, N.H., and Cindy Allen of Ware; brother, Ken Wentworth of Aquinnah; nephew and nieces, Sean Neal, Samantha Rochon, Amanda Burke, and Mary Jablonski.
