He was born in New London, on November 29, 1949, son of Myrlon and Elaine (Thayer) Stroesenreuther. Dick loved the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing and camping; traits he shared with and passed down to his family and friends. He was just a fun guy to be around and loved telling stories of the “Good Old Days.” Dick would do anything to just make someone laugh. He will be greatly missed.
Dick is survived by his sons, Richard (Liz) Stroesenreuther, their children, Brennan, Lauren and Caitlin; Daniel (Hannah) Stroesenreuther, their children, Ellie and Oden; sister, Sue Millard and her son Dustin, and a nephew Steve McGlin. He is further survived by other relatives and many friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, a grandson Nathan Stroesenreuther, a sister Fay McGlin, nephew Jeff McGlin, and a brother in-law James Millard.
