July 15, 1964 - June 14, 2020

On June 14 we had to say goodbye to the most loving father anyone could ask for.
Richard was born on July 15, 1964 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Richard was doing what he loved, which was riding his motorcycle with friends, but this specific ride ended tragically. He had many passions from sports to arts to travelling, he excelled at whatever he put his mind to. He leaves behind two sons, Brooker and Brenden, as well as many more friends and family who will always keep his memory alive.
Due to Covid and current restrictions, a memorial will be announced at a later date.
