Richard Sweet Armstrong of Castine, Maine, died January 12. He was the former owner of Fiddler’s Cove Marina in North Falmouth, spent a term as a selectman in Falmouth, and represented the town on the Cape Cod Commission for five years, serving as the first commission chairman.

The son of Marian H. and Paul F. Armstrong, he was born in 1944 and grew up in North Attleboro, with summers spent on Cape Cod. His maternal grandparents, former Attleboro mayor Harold E. Sweet and Gertrude (Hunton) Sweet, were longtime summer residents of Nye’s Cliff, and the naming of Sweet Road in North Falmouth was made official as “a part of the town’s road system,” reported the Enterprise on July 19, 1957.
