Richard Salthouse of Chester, N.Y., a corporate accountant and former first responder, passed away peacefully in Joe Raso Hospice on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. He was 60.

Richard is survived by his beloved wife, Debra Milito Salthouse; sons, Ted Salt House, Rick Salthouse, and Joseph Salthouse; daughter in-law, Sarah Salt; granddaughter, Violet Salthouse; younger sister, Lorraine Salthouse-Weidner and her husband, John Weidner; niece and goddaughter, Jessica Weidner Zozzaro and her husband, Philip Zozzaro; niece, Madison Milito; nephews, John Weidner and his girlfriend, Rachelle Mercado, and Matthew Weidner and his wife, Kristen Elisabeth; nephew and godson, Spencer Milito; great-nephews, Benjamin Zozzaro, Caleb Weidner, Tyler Weidner, and Jayce Weidner; great-nieces, Julia Zozzaro, Abigail Zozzaro, and Sienna Weidner; and brother in-law, Ralph Milito and his wife, Lori Milito.

Richard is predeceased by his grandparents, Joseph Sasso, Gertrude Sasso, Frederick Salthouse, and Mildred Salthouse; parents Edward Salthouse and Gertrude Salthouse; and his grandsons Jacob Salthouse and Thomas Salthouse.

Richard was born in Brooklyn and raised in Long Island. He was a graduate of Brentwood High School and a Dowling College alumnus with a degree in finance. He married his sweetheart, Debra, a dental hygienist, in November 1980. They moved their family to Chester in 1987. Once he became a resident, Richard joined the Chester Volunteer Ambulance Corps as a first responder and served as an original member of the Chester Football Booster Club.

As a lifelong NY Mets fan, he could be quoted as saying, “Ya gotta believe” at the start of every baseball season. A self-proclaimed diehard Jets fan, he wore green with pride. Richard enjoyed fishing and road rallies, but the source of his greatest joy was his family. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Visitation will be held on Monday, March 18, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at Flynn Funeral & Cremation Memorial Centers, 139 Stage Road, Monroe, N.Y.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, March 19, at 10 a.m. in St. Columba Roman Catholic Church, 27 High St., Chester.

Burial will follow in St. Columba Cemetery, Route 94, Chester.

Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, or the Joe Raso Hospice Residence in New City, N.Y.
