Richard Kocian, a longtime resident of Martha’s Vineyard, died on Wednesday, Dec. 2, in Sarasota, Fla., after a short illness. He was 76.
Dick lived and worked in Fairfield County, Conn., until he fulfilled his wish of many years and made the Vineyard his full-time home.
Dick lived happily in West Tisbury for many years, and in Chilmark for the past seven years.
He is survived by his wife Joan of Chilmark, sons Keith and Michael, and daughter-in-law Lisa.
