WARNER, NH: Richard Senor, 69, of Warner, NH, died on January 22, 2021, at his home where his family took care of him with the assistance of the Concord VNA/Hospice. Nearly fourteen years ago, Richard received the incredible gift of a new kidney which served him well until it began to fail following medical procedures to treat lung cancer. Every day since the transplant Richard was grateful to the staff of Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the anonymous donor.

Richard started, published/edited and wrote for Warner’s Newspaper for approximately 12 years, a labor of love which he shared with town residents every month. He was a Cub Scout leader for several years, served on Town committees and volunteered at the Warner Fall Foliage Festival as well as other endeavors. He enjoyed many hobbies, including woodworking, photography, caring for Molly his beloved Mastiff, following politics and leather working.
