Geoff was born in Winchester, Massachusetts on May 26, 1949, to the late Philip and Ruth (Manning) Richenburg. He was raised in Dedham, Massachusetts and graduated from Thayer Academy and the University of New Hampshire.
Geoff was the third generation owner of the Richenburg Insurance Agency, now located in Braintree, Massachusetts. He worked at the agency for many years, until his unofficial retirement in 2014. Geoff was proud to hand his family business off to the fourth generation, however, he did continue to make weekly visits to the office.
Geoff married his beloved wife, Janet, in Maui, Hawaii, on October 4, 1991. Together they made their home in Walpole, Massachusetts, where they loved entertaining family and friends. Throughout his life, Geoff was an avid golfer. He was a longtime member of the Wollaston Golf Club in Milton and was delighted to find his home at Royal Crest in Walpole with a nine-hole course just outside his door. His greatest love at Royal Crest was being part of the men’s 100 club. He was the master of the rules of golf. Geoff also enjoyed spending time at the beach in Newport, Rhode Island and Florida, but especially looked forward to his family’s annual summer trip to Marshfield. Back at home, Geoff was delighted to spend time with his grandchildren, who gave him the beloved title “Grumpy”.
At the request of Geoff’s family, all services are private.
