Richard A. Cleveland Jr.

Richard A. Cleveland Jr., of Jaffrey, NH, passed away on Wednesday, August 16, 2023 after a long battle with cancer.

He was born on January 4, 1953, in Peterborough, NH, son to Richard and Marion Cleveland, whom have already passed. He grew up in Rindge and is a 1971 graduate of Conant High School. After high school, he took college courses at Franklin Pierce College.

On May 22, 1976, Rick married Patty Sirois, in Jaffrey, NH. Together their family grew with the birth of their daughter, Sara. You could often find them at the beach, going on motorcycle rides, climbing the mountain or ice skating.

Rick was a proud employee of Belletetes of Jaffrey, NH for twenty-one years. Before his time with Belletetes he worked with Master Decorating in Jaffrey, NH for twenty years. He was an avid hunter, skier, trap shooter and New York Yankees fan. He enjoyed listening to live music, especially the blues.  He loved being a Papa to his 2 grandchildren and his house was always buzzing with friends and family. 

Known for his willingness to help others when they needed it most, many considered him their best friend. He went by many nicknames, some more appropriate than others.

Rick is survived by his wife of 47 years, Patty Cleveland; his daughter, Sara Brarmann, and her husband Rian, of Massachusetts and South Carolina, his grandchildren, Stella and Max; his brother, Larry Cleveland of Rindge, NH; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
