Richard Tartakoff, of Avon, 91, beloved husband of Doris Tartakoff, departed this life on November 26, 2018 at Masonicare Health Center of Wallingford. Richard was born in Boston,MA on October 4, 1927 to the late Samuel and Jean Tartakoff. His education in Engineering, military service, and leadership as a Plant Manager was a testimony to his strength and integrity.
