(December 24, 1927 – October 30, 2007)
It is with sadness I announce the passing of my beloved husband, Richard (Dick) at home. Richard was born in Snow Road, Ontario. He is the last member of a family of 16 children. His parents also predeceased him. He is survived by his wife, Joan of 52 years, sister-in-law Vi MacMurdo, nephews John and Donald (Sandee) and their three boys of Calgary, and brother-in-law Lester McLaren of Ontario, as well as many friends and family members. He also leaves behind his canine companion, Jake. Richard was a member of the Canadian Armed Forces for 27 years. Serving with the PPCLI (including 2 tours to Korea). He then transferred to the Royal Canadian Engineers. No service by request. Donations to the BC Cancer Agency.
