Richard P Kreidel III, age 49, of Wolcott, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love and comfort of his family at home on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021. Richard was born Aug. 25, 1972 in Waterbury, the son of Richard P. Kreidel Jr. of Terryville and the late Barbara (Breen) Kreidel. He graduated from Wolcott High School and was the owner and proprietor of LetterKenny Inc. Richard loved music was an accomplished drummer and could be found singing in any number of places. He enjoyed camping with his family during his early years and he possessed a dry, wonderful sense of humor. He was a video enthusiast, loved trips to amusement parks and Comic-Con and loved animals. What was most important to Richard was his accomplishment of raising three wonderful children; his son, Nick, and niece and nephew, Joe and Chloe.
Left to honor his legacy and cherish his memory besides his father and his fatherâ€™s wife, Shirley of Terryville are his son, Nicholas of Wolcott, siblings; Deborah Lane of Waterbury, Elizabeth (Michael) Gorman of Prospect, Edward Lane and Carolyn Fraser, both of Waterbury.
