Southborough has lost one of its most remarkable residents. Dick Upjohn died on Wednesday at the age of 82. From the Metrowest Daily News.
Men in their 70s and 80s break their wrists. It happens.
They don’t usually do so playing basketball.
Such was the life of Richard V. Upjohn, a man friends and relatives say lived an active life on his own terms and had fun doing it.
Upjohn died unexpectedly Wednesday, shortly after the 82-year-old, following his daily routine, rode his bike to work at Fay School from home.
“He loved his bike,” his wife, Sabra, said Thursday. “He loved the outdoors.”
I’ll be working on more remembrances, but in the meantime please feel free to leave your memories, condolences and impressions in the comments below.
