We are sorry to announce the passing of Richard L. Llewellyn on Aug. 2, 2022, at the age of 78. Richard passed away while living in a senior residence in Penfield, N.Y. (just east of Rochester). Richard moved to Penfield two years ago to live close to his brother Douglas, who resides in the area. Previously, Richard lived in Syosset, Wading River and Riverhead, N.Y.
