Richard M. Linehan, age 55 of Templeton, passed away May 5th, 2021 unexpectedly at home. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 26 years and soulmate for 36 years, Robin, and his dog Sky. Thank you to all who loved him unconditionally, he loved you all so much. He loved spending time in the yard, doing small projects, playing with his dogs, always on the computer thinking he was an expert in anything, and wading around in the pool. He is preceded in death by his father, mother, and older brother. He leaves his siblings, William and Kevin of Billerica; John and his wife Nichole of Townsend; Bill and his wife Karen of Woburn; and Becky of Bedford; his deeply loved and devoted parents, Dave and Cathy Young of Bedford; many nieces and nephews: Andrew, Noelle, John Robert, Mel, Ashlee, and Jesse; along with all our wonderful friends that have always cared for him, whether they saw each other or not, he loved you all.
