Richard A. Green, 64, of Ellenburg Depot, passed away Friday, October 23, 2020 at his home under the loving care of his son. He was born in Cambridge, MA on August 1, 1956 to Helene (Pappas) and the late Arthur Green. He moved to the North Country many years ago to pursue his lifelong dream of owning his own pizza shop. He bought Auggy’s Pizza Shop in Dannemora and worked alongside his mother. He was happiest when he was putting a smile on people’s faces with his delicious food. His family in Boston always looked forward to making the drive to eat his pizza and wings.

He loved to drive and loved his family even more. He never missed a monthly 10 hour round trip drive to Boston to see his daughter. His nieces and nephews adored their Uncle Richie and his unexpected drop-in visits. He never missed Jeopardy and would often shock people with how quickly and accurately he would get the correct answer. He gave the best life advice which will be missed deeply.

He is survived by his mother Helene; son Richard of Ellenburg Depot; his daughter Erica of Boston; his sister; his brother Arthur of Somerville, MA; his sister Valerie Geurtze of Oregon; his nephew Arthur Green of Boston; his nephew Robert Green of Lynn, MA; his niece Taylor Green of Boston; his nephew John Giangrande of Oregon; his cats Coca, Chuppa, and Gizmo; his grand pups Lily Rue and Gizmo and many cousins. He loved his family deeply.

His family would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses who showed so much kindness throughout his courageous battle with cancer.

We were so heartbroken to hear that Richard had passed away and we will greatly miss him. He always greeted us with a huge smile whether in person or on the phone and he always knew exactly what we wanted. His pizzas were the absolute BEST and his service was impeccable.
Our deepest sympathies to all of his family and close friends. You have lost an amazing man.
Hugs from Hugh and Cheryl Herron

To Richard's family. A few years ago my son bought a house across the street from the pizza shop. I went over and introduced myself to Rich and he gave me the scoop of the neighborhood. Took my phone number said that he would look out for my son when he bought the house. When my son had his housewarming party he brought over free pizza and sat had and had a cold beer with us! Was always full of smiles. Full of laughs. Full of life. Recently when my son told me he had passed my heart was smashed. Because he was an incredible human being and I am so sorry for your family's loss. As my son said when he sent this post out that he was a legend. And that's a fact! RIP Rich till we meet again!

I can remember Richie showed up at my Mom's house. When he got here he was all sweaty, out of breath. My mom asked "Richie, how did you get here?" He replied " I took my scooter!" We all laughed. He adored my Mom and visited her often. A story I will never forget. His ray of sunshine will always shine through the rest of us. RIP RIchie!
