Richard C. Annis, a longtime Northborough resident, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, March 10, 2020; he was 82 years old and the husband of 61 years to Janet L. (Sinclair) Annis. Richard was born in Worcester and raised in Westborough, the son of the late Curtis F. and Eunice E. (Dubey) Annis.

Richard worked over forty years at the former Alfax Paper & Engineering Corporation in Westborough. After his retirement Richard worked part-time for several years with Enterprise Car Rental. With a precise skill for sign painting, Richard enjoyed painting and lettering trucks, race cars and local business signage; some of which still stand proudly in the surrounding towns. As an avid midget race car fan Richard served as a NEMA track official for several tracks.

In addition to his devoted wife Janet, Richard is survived by a daughter Robin Ward of Shrewsbury; a son Curtis Annis and his wife Kelly of Grafton; six grandchildren, Stefani Ward, Scott Greene, Shelby Seavers, Traci Greene, Katie Congdon and Kelsey Argir; four great-grandchildren, Haley, Amelia, Ethan and Autumn. Richard also leaves his sister, Shirley Annis and her partner, Susan Bourdages of Pennsylvania.

At Richard’s wishes there are no public services planned at this time. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a memorial donation to the American Heart Association, AHA, POB 417005, Boston, MA 02241-7005. To leave a condolence for his family, please visit

To the Annis family,
My husband and I were sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. Although we were neighbors, we did not know him very well, I remember pleasant conversations, however, when he and your mom walked the dogs. We wish you happy memories and peace and our best to your mom.
Fred and Sharyn Philcox

A picture of me when I was around 10 months old, my Dad holding my leg, which went from my ankle to my knee! And telling my Dad how proud I was to have him as my Dad, and how proud I was to be his Daughter.
