He is survived by his sons Richard Jr and Eric, his daughter-in-law Vicki, grandchildren Jordan and Sophie, two brothers Arthur and Gerald and his baby sister Lorraine, many in-laws and nieces and nephews. Richard loved life he loved people and he loved his Ford trucks. He loved taking his grandchildren for drives and spoiling them with ice cream. Richard was the go-to guy for anything that needed fixing, always helping anyone that asked. He loved to show his son Eric's friends how tough he was when they challenged him, and they all did but only once. He enjoyed the simple things in life and will be greatly missed. We love you dad. We would like to thank the staff at Willow Hall they have made the last two years of dads life so much better, they simply are caring loving beautiful people and we love them.

So sad to see you go Dick but we know what you were going through and tired of trying to hold on any further. We know you are in a better place now with Barb and the struggles are over. We have all those memories of the Good Times we all had together along with Daisy & Bill and now you are with them all. You will surely be missed by all. Your Sons will be OK, they did a good job looking after you, loving you. May you RIP Friend. Until we meet again.......... David & Gail Romans
