Obituary of Richard Worth Shampeny

Please share a memory of Richard to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Worth Shampeny was born May 25, 1949 in Randolph, VT. He had three older sisters and two younger brothers. The family moved to Newcomb, NY in 1954, where his father owned and operated a sawmill. Selected as the winner of a baseball scholarship, Worth graduated from Buffalo State University in 1974, originally planning to become a teacher. During an exchange semester in Bozeman, he fell in love with Montana. Although he never moved there permanently, he returned often and was perhaps happiest when hunting, skiing, and fishing in that breath-taking mountainscape. But his home was upstate New York. He worked in construction in the Saratoga area and moved to Lake Placid in 1992, where he met his wife Christine and soon started his own company: Shampeny Contracting. His work was his passion. He loved building and selling houses in remote settings and on lakes. Reliability, precision, and honest, old-fashioned hard work characterized him. Friends, co-workers, and clients quickly warmed to Worthy and admired his shy, polite manner. Painfully soon after retirement, he contracted leukemia and endured half a year of intensive and difficult treatment; Christine was there for him in good days and bad. He passed on February 22, 2024 in his home, with his wife by his side. He is survived by Christine, his sisters Gloria and Pam, his brothers John and Gary, his daughter Brittany, and many nephews and nieces. There will be a Funeral service at St. Agnes Church on March 9 at 10 a.m. The M. B. Clark, Inc. Funeral Home in Lake Placid, NY is in charge of arrangements.
