I just put in a search for Richard O'Connor too because my grandparents were friends with him and quite fond of him. Books he had given them were passed on to me and I still have them in a special spot in the bookcase. I remember the day he passed and how upset they were. I was a young child and it left quite an impression as I had known him too. My grandparents were Don and Iva Wescott.
They had moved back to Maine and lived up the road from him. He was a regular visitor as was the Mrs. I just fondly remember him. Can you tell me more about his life?
