Richard P. Johnston, Sr., 70, of Worcester, passed away on Sunday, March 14, 2021 at UMASS-University Campus Hospital with his loving children by his side.

He leaves behind two sons, Richard P. Johnston, Jr. and his wife Lynn of Worcester and George Maringo and his wife Amy of Millbury; a daughter, Tammy Sousa and her husband Serry of Millbury; also survived by seven grandchildren; a brother, David Johnston and his wife Sarah of San Francisco, CA; a sister, Patricia Corley and her husband Hal of Marietta, GA and his sister-in-law, Dee Johnston of Las Vegas, NV.

Richard loved spending time with his loving children and grandchildren. He enjoyed going to Twin River Casino and the horse races. He was an avid Boston Sports fan.

Richard worked very hard all his life as a Machinist working at such companies as Heald Machine, Kennedy Die Cast and later retiring from Metso in Shrewsbury.
