He leaves to mourn his dedicated and loving wife, Bernadette, and his children Todd, Marlene, Joanne (Dean), and Debbie (Luco), his grandchildren, Trevor, Cory (Kaylee), Ryan, Tyler, Teegan, Brayden, Jayden, Tyson, and Kaïa, and his four great-grandchildren, Austin, Bradley, Nova, and Myla.

Dad was a real family man with the ability to match a child's imagination and also the strength to be a protector for anyone dear to him. His big blue eyes would light up a protector for anyone dear to him. His big blue eyes would light up at the sight of his nieces, nephews, grandchildren. Passing on the lessons of hard work, standing up for yourself, or just having a good laugh. Pep was a proud supporter of our accomplishments and always provided advice for any dilemma.
Due to restrictions on public gatherings a Celebration of Life will follow at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)
Bernadette and family, I want to express how sorry I am for your loss, it must be so hard after spending all these years with a soulmate. I remember times when we worked together and I had some kind of crisis, you asked Richard to help me, and he did with a smile and great sense of humor, and then it didn’t seem like a crisis. May he rest in peace , and he sure had the devotion of a caring loving wife, you!!!! Please take care . Think of you often with gond memories...

Mon oncle Richard as I remember in my early teens , was an example of a father who put his family first and didn’t care for too much nonsense. What he brought as a husband and father is only truly known to each of you. Fathers have to be bosses , friends , teachers , lovers . They need to let us take risks while not allowing us to go too far. There are moments when we feel like our fathers are our enemies and other times when they are our biggest supporters They also play a delicate roll as husbands , whatever he brought to each of you at different times of your lives is with you forever and these are the things that you keep with you. I know the journey had become harder over the past years and I’m sure this year has been so trying on all of you. I hope that M ‘oncles quick passing is a peaceful thought in your hearts and I send you my condolences , lots of love for the 5 of you and your families. - Posted by: Paul (Nephew) on: Dec 20, 2020
