Richard Ritchie $Rich$ Carnegie Jr, 59, of East Hartford, CT departed this life peacefully on April 17, 2022, with his family by his side. Richie attended Bloomfield High School. He spent many years in Middletown before moving to East Harford.
Ritchie was truly a Jack of All Trades. He worked as a Machinist, a Roofer & Painter and a Landscaper. He wouldn’t say that he couldn’t do or fix something. He would show up and get it done.
One thing that Ritchie loved from a young age was music. More specifically, very loud music. You could hear him coming in his car from a block away. He played his music just as loud at home too. He would always say “I got the bangs Yo”. He also made some awesome cakes that were always delicious.
Ritchie is the son of the late Richard and Josephine Carnegie. He is survived by his children Jovan Levy of New York, Shante A. Carnegie of Florida, Mattie Lasha Greaves, Richard Carnegie III and Leslie Gardner Sr. of Connecticut. One sister Renee Burke and his longtime Partner Sheree King of Connecticut. He has several grandchildren; Alexandra A. Belizaire, Za’niyah Lyles, Leslie Gardener Jr. Brianna Gardner, Xavier Carnegie and Donte Simmons. He has several nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. He is preceded by his sister Willette Baisden, his brother Kevin Carnegie and his nephew Blanchard Baisden.
