MASSENA CENTER – Mr. Richard Lee Loffler, 78, a longtime resident of Massena Center and Vero Beach, Florida, passed away Sunday afternoon, September 30, 2018 at Massena Memorial Hospital.

Richard was born November 6, 1939 in Ogdensburg, the son of the late Leon C. and Doris Alice (Cliffe) Loffler. He was a 1958 graduate of St. Mary’s Academy and Canton ATC, where he earned a degree in Electrical and Hydraulics. On May 14, 1960, he married Lillian D.
