Memorial Gifts & Donations




Richard John O’Toole, age 69, of Wilmington, North Carolina (formerly of Scarborough, Maine), passed peacefully on March 25, 2024. He was born and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts. His parents were John E. and Helen Spillane O’Toole.

Richard was married to his college sweetheart, Cynthia (Cindy) Ambrogne-O’Toole, for 43 years. They raised two wonderful children, a son, Justin A. O’Toole, of Saco, Maine, and a daughter, Marisa J. O’Toole, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Richard retired in 2019 from Maine Medical Center, Portland, Maine, where he served as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Outpatient Psychiatry.

Richard was a life-long New York Yankees fan (like his father) and an avid Boston Celtics and UCONN Huskies (his alma mater) basketball fan. He enjoyed watching and coaching his children’s sports, traveling, photography, outdoor activities, and time at the beaches. In Wilmington he volunteered as a tax preparer at the senior center.

In addition to his beloved wife and children, he is survived by a granddaughter, a daughter-in-law and son-in-law, nieces, nephews, and a sister.

Services are being planned to be held in Maine, where he lived for 40 years.

    Rich and Cindy O'Toole were among our very best friends in Maine, having so many wonderful dinner parties as neighbors! I will forever miss talking about politics and laughing about craziness with Rich.
