Richard M. Gombosh, Milford, formerly of Harrington, passed away on Saturday, December 14, at the Milford Center, he was 93 years old.  Mr. Gombosh was born in Ohio, to the late Michael and Susan Gombosh.


Mr. Gombosh served in the United States Air Force and served towards the end of WWII.  His main occupation, which he loved dearly, was as a chief airplane mechanic. 


When he was not hard at work, Mr. Gombosh enjoyed working in his yard and travelling.  He also loved putting together model airplanes, which he collected.  His prized possession was a model plane that he built from scratch with no plans, only measurements that he took and scaled down to size, and took almost 10 years to build.  He also enjoyed tinkering with N scale model railroads.  His most favorite times were with his family playing card games and table games.  His zest for life and spunky personality will be missed by all that knew him.
