ROSKELL - Richard Henry “Richie” passed away peacefully at home on March 31st, 2024, after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease.  He was born in NYC on July 28th, 1933 to Charles Roskell and Marion Steers.  Richie’s parents and brothers John Valentine (Anne) and Charles Roskell (Jean) predeceased him as did his nieces Diane Roskell, Marion Valentine and nephew Mark Valentine. He is survived by his loving wife, Kathy Noonan Roskell, his sons Michael (Deanna), Richard (Crystal), his grandsons Ryan, Patrick and Johnny, his nephews John (Eileen) and David (Jen) Valentine.  Richie was a much-loved brother-in-law and uncle to the entire Noonan family. He was greatly influenced growing up in the shadows of WW2 and in his family’s Navy footsteps, and as such, he was a proud member of the US Naval Reserves (USNR), Submarine Force in his 20’s and 30’s.  Richie was also a proud member of the New York City Fire Department for 27 years and after his retirement, he worked at Roosevelt Savings Bank. He started his family in Brooklyn and moved to Stewart Manor in 1977 and then in 1983 to Rockville Centre, where the family resided for over 34 years.  He moved to Garden City in 2017.  Aside from his family, Richie loved his animals and his boats.  He was a former member of the Hewlett Point Yacht Club as well as the “Irish Day Workers” of Point Lookout.  The family wants to thank Richie’s caregivers Eileen Howard, Kara Howard and Alex Boris for their loving and exceptional care of him for over five years.  A memorial service to celebrate Richie’ s life will be held on Thursday, June 6th, 10AM, at St. Anne’s Catholic Church, Garden City, NY
