Standardbred racehorse owner/trainer Richard C. Flemming, 83, passed away surrounded by his loving family on December 23, 2018.

Flemming served in the Army and worked for Rochester Products, retiring after 35 years of service.

He enjoyed harness racing and working on his small farm. He owned and trained Standardbred racehorses with his partner Ed Beadle and occasionally sat behind one in an overnight race.

After retiring, Flemming and his wife, Dottie, resided in Florida, but came home to Brockport, N.Y. every summer. His smile and quiet spirit will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 62 years, Dorothy (Dottie); daughters, Rhonda (Rick) Greineder, Renate (John) Rappold, and Robin Mansfield; grandchildren, Mark (Melissa) Lowery, Erika (Chad) Glende, Emily (Dan) VanderVen, Rhonda (Donnie) Schofield, Maila Lowery, Ashley (Jonathan) Green, Kyle (Val) Haynes, Mallory (Ryan) Plain, and Dustin (Laura) Mansfield; 10 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Ron (Judi), Fritz (Marilyn), Virginia O’Keefe, and Norma; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Joshua Lowery; sons-in-law, Bill Mansfield and Richard Haynes; and siblings, Pauline, Leona and Henry.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Richard Flemming.
