Anthony Chiappetta

July 14, 2002

Anthony J. "Bill" Chiappetta, 78, a lifelong Greenwich resident, died Saturday, July 13, at Greenwich Hospital.

He died of a stroke, according to his family.

Mr. Chiappetta played for many years in the Town of Greenwich Golf Championship Tournament when the final championship round was played at private clubs in Greenwich. In 1965, the tournament was transferred to the town's golf course, now called Griffith E. Harris Golf Course.

In the tournament's 57-year history, Mr. Chiappetta was a finalist in the championship flight three times -- in 1968, 1970 and 1976. During the 1960s and 1970s, he played against some of the best amateur golfers in Greenwich.

He continued to play golf until a month before his death, shooting well below his age.

Mr. Chiappetta worked at Conde Nast as a pressman's helper until the company moved in 1964. He then worked at Hamilton Avenue School as a custodian until his retirement.

During his retirement, he held many part-time jobs, most recently working as a ranger at the Griffith E. Harris Golf Course.

Born June 27, 1924, in Greenwich, he was the son of the late Dominick and Mary Raiente Chiappetta.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jenny Pugliese Chiappetta of Greenwich; a son, Dominick Chiappetta of Greenwich; three brothers, Patsy Chiappetta of Sunrise, Fla., and Dominick Chiappetta and Richard Chiappetta, both of Greenwich; and several nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will be 5 to 9 p.m. Monday at Castiglione Funeral Home, 134 Hamilton Ave., Greenwich.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Roch Church, 10 St. Roch Ave., Greenwich.

Burial will follow in St. Mary's Cemetery, Greenwich.

George Rickey, 95,

July 22, 2002

ALBANY, N.Y. -- moving art sculptor

Associated Press

Famed moving art sculptor, George Rickey, dead at 95

George Rickey, 95, the famed artist whose moving sculptures catch breezes and awe from perches in the Empire State Plaza and around the world, died last week at his home in St. Paul, Minn.

His large geometric sculptures, of heavy steel shapes balanced delicately on precision bearings he devised himself, spin and swirl with natural air currents. Mr. Rickey was one of only two 20th-century artists to focus on movement in sculpture. The other was Alexander Calder, whose mobiles Mr. Rickey first saw in the 1930s, the New York Times reports.

Mr. Rickey kept studios in Berlin and Santa Barbara, Calif., but lived since 1960 in East Chatham, 122 miles north of New York City. He taught for five years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy before retiring from teaching in 1966. But he kept traveling for public commissions and exhibitions as he had throughout his life.

Born in 1907 in South Bend, Ind., Mr. Rickey moved with his family to Scotland in 1913. He studied modern history at Oxford and took painting and drawing courses at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. He later studied in Paris, and taught history briefly in Massachusetts before becoming a full-time painter. He taught in art schools in Michigan, Illinois and Pennsylvania in the late '30s before serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II.

His work in a machine shop with engineers improving aircraft weapons stirred his earlier interests in science and technology, the New York Times reports. Mr. Rickey taught at the Chicago Institute of Design in the late '40s, where he began to seriously consider bringing form and movement together, the paper reports.

Mr. Rickey made his first kinetic sculpture out of window glass in 1949. His steel "Cluster of Four Cubes" stands in Washington's National Gallery of Art sculpture garden, and other works sway in 228 public exhibitions around the world. Mr. Rickey's last and tallest sculpture -- 57 feet 1 inch high -- was installed March at the Hyogo Museum in Kobe, Japan.

Peter Graham Campfield

July 21, 2002

Peter Graham Campfield, 77, of Fairfield, a former Old Greenwich resident, died Tuesday, July 16, at Southport Manor.

He died of pneumonia, according to his family.

Mr. Campfield moved to Old Greenwich in 1966 after Esso transferred him to its headquarters in New York City.

In 1971, he was transferred to Brussels, where he worked as executive vice president and treasurer for Esso Chemicals Europe.

In 1976, he and his family returned to Connecticut, moving to Riverside, where he worked for Exxon as executive assistant to the president and head of investor relations until his retirement in 1983.

Mr. Campfield was an avid sailor and racer. He had been a member of the Old Greenwich Yacht Club since 1966 and served as Commodore of the Greenwich Cove Racing Association for several years.

Born Oct. 2, 1924, in Dorchester, England, he was a son of the late Oliver and Dorothy Campfield. His family moved to Ontario, Canada, in 1929.

Mr. Campfield volunteered for the Royal Canadian Navy in 1940 and served on Flower Class Corvettes, providing convoy escort in the North Atlantic until the end of World War II.

After the war, he remained on active duty with the Canadian Naval Reserves while attending Queens University in Kingston, Ontario. He graduated with honors and began his career with Esso.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Bobbi Campfield of Fairfield; three sons, Patrick Campfield and Kim "Beau" Campfield, both of Fairfield, and Peter "P.J." Campfield of Mill Valley, Calif.; a daughter, Phillipa Shoffner of Macon, Ga.; his sister, Junia Bramm of Boca Raton, Fla.; six grandchildren; and nine nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by a brother, Derek Campfield, and a sister, April Fraser.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Aug. 2 at First Congregational Church, 148 Beach Road, Fairfield.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Red Cross, Southeastern Chapter, 158 Brooklawn Ave., Bridgeport, CT 06604.
