Richard loved his friends and family, he enjoyed storytelling, jokes, music, dancing and a wonderful game of cards especially cribbage. He grew up in Newfoundland, he went to Kings Edgehill college in N.S. and returned home to work in sales with the family business. He loved living near the ocean, especially at his cottage in Middle arm Avondale, where many friends congregated over the years. He spent many hours tinkering in his garage, wood working and having morning coffee with the boys.
He will always be lovingly remembered by his family and friends.
There will be a memorial and celebration of life to be announced at a later date.
