Richard Hatfield

February 14, 1935 — January 1, 2022


It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Leroy Hatfield of Lanham, MD must announce his passing.

On Saturday, January 1, 2022 our beloved passed away at the age of 86.

Richard is survived by his wife of 62 years, Patricia Eileen; daughter, Teresa Marie Szurek; sons, Anthony Lee Hatfield (wife Leticia) and Timothy James Hatfield; grandson, Daniel Patrick Hatfield; granddaughter, Allison Victoria Hatfield; and grand pets, Riley and Tortilla.

His love of family describes him best.  Richard was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on February 14, 1935.  He graduated from Anacostia High School in 1953 and then served in the Navy for four years.  He worked as a Manager for United Airlines for 39 years, retiring in 1997.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Evelyn Lou Bailey; father, Hiram Delbert Hatfield; brother John Bailey Hatfield; and son-in-law, Mark Anthony Szurek.

A private viewing will take place for immediate family only, followed by a service for all at the gravesite, at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland, MD at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
