Richard “Rick” M. Margison, 56, of Wolcott passed away Saturday, July 10, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Ilona “Lonnie” Margison (Piorkowski) for the past 29 years. Born on July 9, 1965 in Waterbury, he was the son of  Michael and the late Maryann (Nirka) Margison.

Left to remember and cherish Rick’s love are his father, Michael Margison and wife, Marge of Okeechobee, FL, his children, Kyle Margison of Plainville, Nicole Kuczenski of Bristol, grandchildren, Evan and Lucas Kuczenski, brother, Bobby Margison and wife Veronica of Thomaston, father and mother-in-law, Richard and Inez Piorkowski of Southbury, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Terri and John Corcoran and Mark and Mandy Piorkowski, nieces and nephews, Holly Corcoran,  Audrey Corcoran (goddaughter), Ashley Margison Taylor Margison (godson), Claire Piorkowski and James Piorkowski. Lexie, the newest member of his family and therapy dog, comforted him and snuggled by his side until the very end.

Rick touched many lives with his caring heart and generosity and would always be the first to help those in need. He enjoyed spending time on the water, fishing, was an avid Red Sox and Seahawks fan and lived his life always looking forward to his next adventure. He was employed by Allegheny Ludlum for the past 37 years as a steel worker, where he formed many lifelong friendships.

A heartfelt thank you to our many wonderful friends who have always stood by Rick’s side and provided comfort and support during his courageous battle with cancer over the past two years. We love you!!
