                                              Rest in Peace, Richard

Richard S. Agin

AGE: 70 • Dennisville

Richard S. Agin, 70, of Dennisville, NJ, passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side.

Rich is survived by his wife Sharon (Armour-Pepper) Agin; children Richard J. Agin of Voorhees, NJ and Michelle Pepper Graf; son in law Carl Graf; grandchildren Dylan Rose Graf and Evan J. Graf of Montclair, NJ; and in laws Fred, Karen and Lauren Ceruti of Gulfport, FL.

For 33 years until his retirement in 1998, Rich was a well-loved and respected science teacher in the Pennsauken School District and a certified firearms instructor. In his early years, Rich participated in sports car rallies, enjoyed driving his MGA and Triumph TR3, played in the band for the Hog Island Mummers Band and his own band "Blue Boys". He greatly loved boating, fishing, nature, feeding the turtles at Bogwood Gardens and most of all, having fun with family and friends. His wit, humor and above all, his warmth will be missed by all.

Services will be held on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. at the Radzieta Funeral Home, 9 Hand Avenue, Cape May Court House, where visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. The services are to be followed by a Celebration of Life afterwards at his home in Dennisville, NJ. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Wetlands Institute's Coastal Conservation Research Program (Education Internships and Terrapin Conservation Project), 1075 Stone Harbor Blvd, Stone Harbor, NJ 08247. Condolences may be sent from www.radzieta.com

The family quotes Shakespeare in saying, "Let us not measure our sorrow by their worth, for then it will have no end."
