Richard P. Bepko, age 82, of Shelton, formerly of Bridgeport, died on Monday, April 21, 2014 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Attorney Bepko was born in Bridgeport to the late Frank and Katherine Lyons Bepko. He graduated from Fairfield Prep and Fairfield University. He received his juris doctorate degree from Boston College.
Attorney Bepko was a principal in the Bepko and Bepko Law Firm in Bridgeport along with his late brother, Thomas J. Bepko. He continued his law practice for over 50 years with the expertise and assistance of his long time employee and cousin, Marilyn Lincoln. Attorney Bepko was appointed by Mayor Leonard S.

He was a very active with the Fairfield University Glee Club alumni. Attorney Bepko was also a member of the Bridgeport Bar Association and the Germania Schwaben Club in Bridgeport.
Attorney Bepko was a man of unquestionable character, integrity and honesty. He had a sincere interest in people, a great sense of humor and was extremely generous and family oriented.
