Richard McClintock
Richard Dudley McClintock passed away on August 4th, 2021, surrounded by family. In his final moment, he shared a smile with Noreen, his wife of 41 of his 66 years. Those who knew Rich can't help but smile while talking about him. He lived with joy. He was Richie to his parents, Elizabeth and Paul McClintock and younger brothers Paul and Joe McClintock. Born October 22nd, 1954 in Orange, New Jersey, he later followed in his father's footsteps, attending William and Mary University where he was on the track team. He received his bachelor's degree in accounting from Seton Hall University in 1976. He was Dad to Megan Ogle and husband Matt Ogle, Ryan McClintock and wife Megan McClintock, Tim McClintock and wife Alyssa McClintock, and Caitlin Least and husband Riley Least. His relationship with each child was intentional and individual, and he was always just a phone call away. He was Dud to his seven grandchildren Olivia Ogle, Grayson Ogle, Caleb Ogle, Evelyn McClintock, Jane McClintock, Warren McClintock and Ethan McClintock. And when he was behind the wheel of his beloved red boat, he was Captain Dud, naturally. Rich was steady, calm and kind. He got angry so rarely, that when he did it warranted a nickname from his family—Red Rich. Red Rich was quick to forgive and forget. Around Christmas, all were treated to an appearance by Holiday Rich, a somehow even more joyful version of Rich. Rich earned the nickname Teenagent when he became a Special Agent for the FBI at the youngest age possible. Over his 28-year career, he was compassionate and fair. To quote one colleague, “even the people Rich put in jail liked him.” He had recently retired, not so he could play golf, but so he could give his time to help others. He became an advocate for children in the foster care system with CASA and volunteered at the Storehouse Food pantry. While he had many names and nicknames, all remember Rich as a man of faith and love who wanted to help and serve. When Noreen asked anything of Rich, he would playfully quote The Princess Bride in response: “As you wish.” He may have been joking, but he meant it. “So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22

    Greetings and grace McClintock family,

    I met Dudley (as I called him due to me seeing his “official name”) on assignment. Our conversations were about his beautiful wife Noreen, kids, grandkids; and always revolved around scripture verses and faith. We debated applicability verses and the pertinence within our lives each day for the Lord. What amazed me, was his constant reverence and love for the charismatic Noreen and her devotion and attention to “his parents.” Dudley went into precise unique detail of her organizational skills with the parents’ doctor’s appointments; their medication; their living arrangements; and their cognizant mind. He expressed the strength Noreen had in caregiving for his most precious gifts. And, while he had received numerous career awards; the true crown of life was his exquisite jewel that is worth far more than any work award or diamond, his wife Noreen. Though she is small, she is fierce and mighty!

    May you, Noreen, and the McClintock family feel our precious Lord’s loving arms around you; holding you up; and seeing every tear; that will be washed away at the reunion in heaven.

    Showers of blessings flow (Ezekiel 34:26),

  2. Dear Megan and Matt and Family,
    Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of our father, Rich. We pray you find peace, comfort and joy in knowing that he has met his savior and that you will see him again in heaven.

    With love,
    Robin and Beecher Abeles and family.

  3. I’ll always remember Rich as a laid back, low keyed, soft spoken guy who had the unique ability to instantly turn it around to convey a strong sense of urgency when the situation, either real or perceived, warranted it. Without saying a word, he exuded a quiet confidence that everything would be fine which, under his direction, almost always proved to be the case. Looking back, it’s easy to see why Rich was admired and respected as a natural leader. Although I hadn’t seen him since the mid or late seventies, just reading his obituary made me want to reevaluate how others perceived me, with the intention of becoming a better person. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if all of the Angels and Saints in Heaven were gathered around Rich at this very moment, trying to glean whatever they could from him to improve their own images! TO RICH’S FAMILY, FRIENDS & ALL THOSE WHO LOVED HIM, PLEASE ACCEPT MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY & SINCEREST CONDOLENCES ON HIS PASSING. May Rich Rest In Peace As God Watches Over His Soul Throughout Eternity. You’re Already Missed But, Rest Assured, You’ll NEVER Be Forgotten, My Brother.
