Richard Marter Sr.

(May 23, 1926 to Jun 13, 2012)

Providing for his family was always job one. He’d wake up in the morning and head to work, stop home for a quick bite to eat, head back out to drive a taxi in Riverside, get some sleep and do it all over again. Working for him was a way of life, he always held two or three different jobs. In the rare times he wasn’t working he loved to bowl, watch old westerns, gamble in Atlantic City and Vegas and fish. He served his country in WWII.rnRichard met a young woman named Catherine Shaner at a firehouse dance. Their 62 year marriage was blessed by 6 children: Richard Jr. (Linda), Linda Gould, Susan Griffin (Andrew), Penny Stankiewicz (Paul), Edward (Lea), and Douglas (Harriet); 12 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren with one on the way and one great-great-grandchild who’s on the way; he was brother of William, Florence Stokes and the late Irene Fields.rnCome celebrate 86 hard working years Monday 9-11 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, 478 Cooper Street, Beverly, where there will be a service at 11.
