Williamson:  Richard grew up in Marion, NY. He was predeceased by his parents John and Josephine (VanOverbeck) Hermenet, and his brother Donald.  

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Louise (Roos) Hermenet, children Lynn (Dick) Kamps, Mark (Lynn) Hermenet, and Rachel (David) LaRitz.  Also he is survived by his grandchildren Jennifer (Preston) Cosgrove, Heather (Ryan) Ter Louw, Amy (Nicholas) Smith, Benjamin (Jena) Kamps, Alyssa (Zachary) Poole, Jared Hermenet (fiance Brittany Mercier),  Rebecca LaRitz, and Christina LaRitz; and great grandchildren Anna and Ivy Cosgrove, Peyton and Paisley Poole, and Caroline and Nora Smith. In addition, he is survived by his brothers John (Jack) Hermenet, Eugene (Janet) Hermenet sister-in-law Marie Roos, brother-in-law Arthur Hielkema, and many nieces and nephews.

Richard graduated from Marion High School in 1949 and Morrisville Ag and Tech School in 1951 in the food technology program. He was employed by many of the local food processing plants in the area in several capacities, primarily Richardson Foods and Garrett Callahan Corporation until he retired to assist his son Mark on his fruit farm. Throughout his life, Richard was a member of the Reformed Church of America, serving as a Sunday School teacher, choir director, elder and deacon.

Richard loved the outdoors and spent his early years on his parents muck farm in Marion. He especially loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren, and he spent as much time as possible with them outdoors on the fruit farm.

The family would like to especially thank the staff at St. Anne's Community Care Center at Cherry Ridge in Webster and to the visiting nurse services of Hospice of Rochester.

A memorial service will be held at the Pultneyville Reformed Church, 7784 Hamilton St., Williamson, NY at 11:00 am on December 22, 2018.  A private burial will be held at the Marion Cemetery.
