Richard Cosgrove


QUEENSBURY — Richard Cosgrove, age 82, of Queensbury, NY, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, November 27, 2023 at Saratoga Hospital. Born on June 23, 1941, in Utica, NY, he was the son of the late Glen Cosgrove and Edna Kohler-Cosgrove.

Richard graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a degree in Nursing. He dedicated his professional life to caregiving as a registered nurse at Albany Medical Center, hospice in Washington County and the Eddy VNA in Troy, NY, before retiring in 2013. Outside of his profession, Richard was a long-time member of the Greenwich Elks Lodge. Richard’s passion for life was unmistakably reflected in his diverse hobbies. His zest for life was evident in his myriad of interests, which included hiking, riding motorcycles, listening to smooth jazz, nurturing landscapes, traveling, playing cards, dancing the night away and learning about the mysteries of outer space as well as a deep love of animals. He loved spending the winter months in Florida being near the ocean. He embraced every moment with enthusiasm and kindness, and he brightened the room with his laughter and sense of humor. Richard had a deep appreciation for his lifelong friends who enriched his life beyond words.

He leaves behind cherished memories with his loving wife of 57 years, Lulubelle Cosgrove; his son, Darren Cosgrove (Randee); daughter, Alisha Cosgrove; brothers, Robert Cosgrove (Kathy), Dennis Cosgrove (Mary), and Nathan Thomas (Debra). The light of his life was his granddaughter, Delaney Cosgrove.
