Richard J. Wojtkowski, 67, of Westerly, passed away on September 5, 2020 at The Westerly Hospital after a brief illness.

Rick will be sadly missed by his wife of 44 years, Adora; his son Adam and his wife Deb; and his granddaughters, Avery Jade and Sadie Lee, along with his sister Sandra Pascal and her husband Ken, and their children, Cynthia, Kristina and Christopher. He also leaves behind his large family of in-laws and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Matthew and Josephine Wojtkowski; and his daughter Sara.

Rick was born in Worcester, Mass and lived on Vernon Hill. He attended the former St. Mary’s School for 12 years. He went on to graduate from Nichols College with a degree in accounting. He spent many years working for different construction companies, among them Zecco, Inc. and Dixon Construction in Northboro, Mass. He moved to Westerly, RI in 2008 after completely renovating a house close to his favorite place in the world, Misquamicut Beach. He ran Wojo’s Handyman Services for several years before going to work at Cable Components in Pawcatuck, CT until he retired in May of this year.

Rick loved golfing, going to the beach and spending time with his family and friends. He also loved to work around the house and yard, and on his computer. He always had some kind of project going. He rarely sat still for long!

Because of the Corona Virus, services will be postponed until we can safely gather to celebrate Rick’s life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice.
Gaffney-Dolan Funeral Home, 59 Spruce St., Westerly is in care of the arrangements. For online condolences please visit

Rick and I shared many good times at St. Mary’s, both in and out of school. He was someone you could trust and depend upon. My sympathy goes out to his entire family. With my deepest condolences. Steve Lebel

To Rick’s family,
My deepest heartfelt condolences to you all. I was so shocked to find out about his passing away.
We shared the same 12 years at St Mary’s, similar experiences (freshmen initiation, ring day during our junior year), fun times (school beach trips, grammar school movie trips) and challenging ones (algebra class, chemistry class).
I am planning our 50th High School reunion for next year. An honorary place will be saved for him. He will not be forgotten!

Adora, Adam and Deb, I am sorry for your loss. I knew Rick as a small kid going to work with my father at Zecco’s. I later worked for Rick in Auburn and Westboro at Tyree, and eventually for Dixon in Shrewsbury. still remember calling him with an issue on the job-site, after telling him the problem, I would have to say, “Rick are you there?” and he would reply “I’m thinking”. Your husband and father always treated me with respect, he will be missed.
