Obituary of Richard C. Davies

Richard “Rick” Clark Davies passed away January 19, 2024, in Mt. Kisco, NY. Rick was born on April 12, 1945, in Mt. Kisco, NY; a lifelong resident of the Katonah-Bedford community and a beloved resident of Fellowship Hall in Bedford Hills for over 30 years. Rick contributed his skills to various workplaces, including Northern Westchester Hospital, Caldor’s, and Clark Associates. In retirement, he found joy in dedicating time to his true passion: recycling.


Proudly serving as a member of the Katonah Fire Department for 50 years, Rick cherished the responsibilities that came with being a firefighter. In his later years, he continued to serve his brothers by making coffee and opening doors when the alarm rang. Fireman parades were a highlight for him, especially riding in the antique car leading the marchers. He held a special fondness for the old La France truck.


A devoted Mets fan, Rick followed games with unwavering optimism about their chances for World Series titles deep, deep into October. 


Weekdays at 3:00 PM were a sacred time reserved exclusively for the ceaseless drama of General Hospital. Rarely missing an episode, Rick could vividly report on the characters' transgressions.


His favorite color was red, and he loved naps. He loved country music, linguine with clams, and taking opportunities to be chivalrous. More than anything, Rick wanted to be included. Perhaps there's someone in your life who sees the world differently – please find ways to include them. It means so much more than you know.  


Rick is survived by his loving brother, Philip, of Bedford Hills, NY; his cherished sister, Denise Tedaldi (née Davies), and brother-in-law, Gene, both of Lyndeborough, NH; and his devoted niece, Sam of Brooklyn, NY.


A service will be held at Clark Associates Funeral Home, 4 Woods Bridge Rd, Katonah, NY, on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2024, at 11:00 am, with burial at Bedford Union Cemetery following the service.
