Services have been set for Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22, for Richard P. Minteer, 61, of Westampton, a Riverside lawyer who died while kayaking Saturday, June 15, on the Oswego River in Wharton State Forest.

A visitation is to be from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at the Sweeney Funeral Home, 337 Bridgeboro St., Riverside. A Funeral Mass is to be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at St. Casimir Church, 502 New Jersey Ave., Riverside, family friend Janet Sozio said Monday.

Born in Wheeling, W. Va., Mr. Minteer grew up in Claysville, near Pittsburgh, and earned a bachelor's degree at Bethany College.

Mr. Minteer worked during the day at a chemical firm while attending four years of night classes at Rutgers-Camden School of Law, from which he graduated in 1979, Sozio said.

After working for a Mount Holly firm, Mr. Minteer opened his own law office in Riverside in 1981, focusing on bankruptcy, real estate, and landlord-tenant matters, Sozio said.

He moved his office to Delran and then returned it to Riverside, she said.

Mr. Minteer often played basketball at the Riverside Turners, an athletic club.

He is survived by wife Nho Nguyen, sons Kevin and Matthew, daughter Krista, and two sisters, and by Nguyen's children, Nick, Chau, and Yen Ly. He is also survived by former wives Gina Kelly and Aida Minteer.

Condolences may be sent to the family at his law office, 131 Bridgeboro St., Riverside, N.J. 08075.
