Funeral services were held Wednesday for a former Rockland County Legislator who died earlier this month at the age of 83. Nanuet’s Richard Caunitz would have turned 84 next month. He represented the town of Clarkstown in the legislature from 1992 to 1995. He was a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Knights of Columbus, and the American Legion Post 1682. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to consider donating to the Bonnie Walsh Education Fund of United Hospice of Rockland.
