Richard Edward Wiseman Obituary

Richard Edward Wiseman, “Rich” 78 of Arlington, VT died Monday May 13, 2024 at Southwestern VT Medical Center.

He was born in Springfield, MA on December 18, 1945, the son of the late George Edward Wiseman and June Catherine (Latourelle) Wiseman. He graduated from West Springfield High School and received his master’s degree in education from Springfield College. After college, Richard put his degree to work and started teaching science at his former high school, where he also coached the ski team. On weekends in the winter, he was a ski instructor. Over the years Richard worked his way up from ski instructor, and soon turned the ski business into a full-time job. Over the years he worked at a number of ski areas in Massachusetts, Vermont, California and Pennsylvania. When Richard retired, he was the president of Bromley Ski Area in Peru, VT. After he retired, he spent his time sailing, traveling, cooking and reading. He loved being outside, preferably barefoot, if the weather permitted. He visited many places that were on his bucket list. One of his favorite trips was to Thailand in 2022. He leaves behind his four children, Dr. Richard A. Wiseman, Stephanie Wiseman Galpin, Michael E. Wiseman, Bryce A. Wiseman, and four grandchildren. We honor a life that was lived to the fullest, we honor a spirit, now free. You'll long be remembered, whenever we say: “Fair Winds and Following Seas.” In lieu of flowers or gifts please go skiing, sailing, golfing, or traveling and think of Rich. Rich saw life as an adventure. Go live yours!


FUNERAL NOTICE: A memorial service for Richard will be held by the family at a later date. To add to the Book of Memories, please visit www.flynndagnolifuneralhomes.com.
