Obituary

Rick Fortune, age 62, of Saranac Lake, died Friday, April 19, 2019.

Born in Saranac Lake, New York on December 5, 1956, he was the son of Frederick and Bernita (Naegle)
Fortune. Rick married Katharine “Katie” Riedinger on August 24, 1991 at St. Bernard’s Church in Saranac Lake.

Rick lived in Rochester for a while and moved back to SL in early 80’s.

He was an accomplished, skillful auto technician and worked at Stanley’s Chevrolet and Carcuzzi Car Care Center. He enjoyed taking care and driving his 1964 F85 Oldsmobile.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially on his patio surrounded by his gardens, grilling and having a fire. He also loved riding his bike.

His love of all music would find him as a patron of “Party on the Patio” enjoying the music and company of his many friends.

He is survived by his wife Katharine, three sons Craig Fortune of Saranac Lake, Nicholas Fortune of Schenectady, and Brian Fortune of Saranac Lake, two sisters Barbara Paulino of Webster, NY and Vickie Carrieri of Hartsville, SC, three brothers Larry Fortune of CO, Robert Fortune of Altona, NY and Frederick Fortune of Rochester, NY, and many nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will take place at the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home on Saturday April 27, 2019 from 4:000 PM to 6:00 PM. A prayer service will immediately follow at the funeral home at 6:00 PM, with Fr. Patrick Ratigan officiating.

Friends wishing to remember Rick may make memorial contributions to the Saranac Lake Police Department PBA, NYS Police Foundation, Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department or the North Country Life Flight in care of the funeral home. Family and friends can also share their memories and sign the online guestbook at fortunekeoughfuneralhome.com.
