To Lynn and all the Squires Family!
On behalf of myself and all the Tucker family I want to send our sincerest sympathy at this very sad time. Richard was always such a friendly person and years back was always a good friend of our brother Nath. We lost Nath in November so I speak from experience when I say that one of the hardest things we have done as a family was to lose a sibling at such a young age and one who was so special and loved so dearly! We are selfish to wish them back to suffer but still I think there are a lot of days when we could all be a bit selfish and wish them back just because it hurts so much to have to live without them. Please know that you are not alone during this most difficult time because we are all together as one family in prayer!
Take care, stay close as a family and God Bless! RIP Richard!

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Although I hadn’t seen Richie very often when I visited Newfoundland I treasured our infrequent visits. He was always in a good mood and had such funny stories. He was a good friend to so many people, he will be missed.

Hey Lynn and family
I’m so so sorry to hear of Rich’s passing girl. I know how close you were so my heart goes out to you and all your siblings. You are ALWAYS in my thoughts and now you are in my thoughts and prayers and don’t ever forget that I got two BIG arms to hug you with if you ever needs one. God bless

My sincere condolences to all of Rich’s family and friends. So sorry to hear of his passing.

My heart breaks for my family back in Newfoundland. I haven’t seen Uncle Rich in a few years, but I have a lifetime of memories of fishing and working side by side with him, Dad and others. I wish I was home to be able to share in the many stories that will be told over the next few days and to give everyone hugs. Uncle Rich was a kind and funny man; he will be missed greatly.

Love to you all. See you in heaven Uncle Rich. xo

Nancy and family,

So sorry to hear of Rich’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss. My condolences to the Squires family, and my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Rest in peace Rich. You will be missed.

Rich and I met in high school and quickly became good buddies. I think we fished every pond in St. Phillips. He was made for the country and we had the time of out lives at my Dad’s cabins in Salmonier. We fished and rabbit hunted with Rich’s dog Skipper and various beagles over the years. I have wonderful memories of staying overnight at the Squires home in St. Phillips. I was always welcome no matter how many were there. Rich loved St. Phillips and loved his family. He was a very true friend to me and I’ll miss him dearly. My sincere condolences to all the Squires family.

The Goudies grew up with Rich around a lot as Lee and Rich were great friends.. We loved him (Mom had a real soft spot for Rich) – he was part of our lives, part of our family and we’re left with many happy memories. He was a good soul So sorry he was unwell this past while. Our sincere condolences to his family on your loss.

Our deepest condolences to the Squires family
Rich you always had a smile on your face and a heart of gold my friend…you will be greatly missed….R.I.P

Diane & all of Rich’s family. My deepest condolences on your loss. Rich was so upbeat whenever we would meet & I am sure he will be missed by many.

Rich was a just a wonderful person who had a smile, laugh or hug for everyone. I will always remember a selfless and kind man who didn’t ask for much in this life, but certainly gave selflessly of himself and loved his family so dearly. Love you Rich xoxo

Our condolences to the Squires Family.

Be good and God bless is what you always said when I left your home.

So sorry for your loss. R.I.P Rich. Such a nice man.

Richard was a very positive person. I have very fond memories of him. I never knew him to be hurtful or negative towards anyone. When ever I visited, I was greeted with smiles and stories. He has told me about working on communication towers in Ontario… unbelievable some of the experiences he’s had! It’s no doubt he has lived a great life. Always surrounded by people who he loved and who have loved him. I have no doubts that he is in a better place, surrounded by his mother and father and any friends and family who have left this world prior.
