He was born in New London, CT on June 21, 1953, the son of Richard B. and Marion J. (Grippo) Brumaghim.

A resident of Alstead, he was employed at a local horse farm for the past 15 years. He was a gentle man who enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, gardening, hiking, and was a true survivalist who lived a free and simple lifestyle. Rich will also be missed by his dog "Bandit" and the horses that he cared for each day. He had a true compassion for animals, nature, family, friends, and the Native American culture.

He is survived by a daughter, Shawna M. O'Dette of Stonington, CT; a son, Richard "Ricky" Brumaghim of CT; four grandchildren, his mother, Marion J. Brumaghim of Peterborough, NH; two brothers, Thomas Brumaghim and his wife, Michelle, of New Ipswich, NH, Stephen Brumaghim and his wife, Suzi, of Troy, NH; three sisters, Susan Smith and her husband, Mike, of Bennington, NH, Judy Davidson and her husband, Rick, of Kittery Point, ME, Marian Caisse and her husband, Don, of Temple, NH; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Richard B. Brumaghim.

Services will be private. Family and friends wishing to honor Richard are asked to take a nature walk and stop to look around at how beautiful it is, give your dog a steak and a hug, and share a funny story of his life with others.

The Foley Funeral Home of Keene, NH is assisting the family with the arrangements.
