Richard A. Blythe passed from us on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 peacefully at his home in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Born 1930 in Doylestown, he was the son of the late William A. and Aldyth (Weisel) Blythe.
Richard was preceded in death by his dear wife of 64 years, Alma (Corson) Blythe, his brother, Robert Blythe and his sister, Betty (Blythe) Mauer.
Richard was 1948 graduate of Doylestown High School and a 1952 Graduate of Pennsylvania State University.
Richard met his wife, Alma, while they were teaching in Bucks County. He was a teacher, guidance counselor and coach in the Centennial and Central Bucks School Districts.
Summers were spent at the shore in Surf City, New Jersey and on the Lake in Ontario, Canada, and he always loved his home in Doylestown. Most important to him were family and his large circle of friends.
Dick and Alma were avid golfers and enjoyed playing tennis and cards with their friends.
Richard is survived by his sons: Richard (Britta), Brett (Jackie), Todd (Bonnie) and Chris (Dani); his eight grandchildren: Ryan, Tyler, Alexandra, Jack, Ellie, Eamon, Jaycee and Cian and his two great-grandchildren: Luna and Wyatt, as well as his brother, Jon Barrie Blythe
