Richard was a hard-working and easy going man who loved his family and friends. He was a free bird, who enjoyed the outdoors and riding on the open road on his Harley. He was a devoted Toronto Maple Leafs fan and a music lover. Richard was a true inspiration to all, with a positive outlook and determination that was unwavering until his last breath.

Visit and for Richard's memorial.
