       Richard Charles Hoadley, who had been comptroller and senior vice president of the First National Bank of East Hampton, died on Nov. 26 at the Bethesda Memorial Hospital in Boynton Beach, Fla. His death was due to complications of renal failure following a lengthy illness. He was 77.

       Mr. Hoadley retired from the bank in 1992. Active in East Hampton community life, he was a charter member and president of the East Hampton Kiwanis, a member of the East Hampton Fire Department, and helped start the East Hampton Catastrophic Illness Fund. 

       He was born on June 26, 1936, in Ashtabula, Ohio, to Edward Paul Hoadley and the former Dorothy Harper. He grew up there, graduating from Edgewood High School, and  attended the University of Dayton. Joining the Air Force, he was stationed first at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio,  where he was an instructor. He was subsequently stationed in Montauk, where he met Arlene Sally Brubaker, who became his wife in 1958. They lived in Ashtabula for about 10 years, returning to East Hampton in 1967. Mrs. Hoadley died in 1997.

       A sports fan, Mr. Hoadley was a supporter of East Hampton High School football, often traveling across Long Island to attend the team’s games. He enjoyed the beach and surfcasting at the ocean, and, once retired, did a lot of traveling. He moved to Florida in 2001, and was remarried in 2003.

       In addition to his wife, Mary-Lou Hoadley, he is survived by two children: Mary Hoadley of Silver Spring, Md., and Rick Hoadley of Hagerstown, Md. He is also survived by four grandchildren and a sister, Anne Simmons of Madison, Ohio.
