In Loving Memory
Richard John McDermott

Richard John McDermott II, age 66, of Pulaski passed away unexpectedly along with his wife Annmarie on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

He was born July 18, 1956 in Lake Hurst, NJ, to the late Richard I and Inez McDermott. He worked at Novelis for many years retiring in April, where he has since worked as a contractor part time. He was an avid outdoorsman who spent much of his time fighting for many different hunting rights in NY. He founded The New York Crossbow Coalition, attending many shows and trips to Albany for the cause. He was also involved in many clubs and organizations that he was very passionate about. He was most proud of his family, including his 3 children and 2 grandchildren. He was always willing to help anyone who needed it.

Surviving are his three children, Megan (Eric) Burch of Canandaigua, Valerie (Troy) Bulluck of Pulaski, and Thomas (Allie) McDermott of West Monroe. His two grandchildren Brayleigh and Mason Bulluck. Three sisters, Sandra (Thomas) Crandall, Barbara (James) Lavoie and Francis (Thomas) Wheat. Four Sisters-in-law, Cindy Lewis, Therese Castner, Bonnie Golden and Lisa Castner. Several nieces, nephews and cousins.
