December 10, 1946 – September 24, 2022
In loving memory ~
Robert Frederick Richardson (75), born in Victoria B.C., passed peacefully in 100 Mile Hospital, September 24, 2022, with his loving wife Heather by his side. Although Rob spent all his life living on Vancouver Island, they moved up to 100 Mile House, B.C. in the Cariboo in 2021 for some new adventures.
He was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Minerva Richardson and his first wife Gloria Richardson.
He leaves behind his wife Heather, sister Judy (Bruce) Southern, four children from his first marriage, Daniel (Janice)Richardson, Cheryl (Mike) Murray, Cindy (Mike) Greenwood, Dean Richardson (Caroline Sharpe). Heather’s children: Charlene (Shane) Crocker, Christine (Reg) McCormack, Andrew Scarisbrick (Amber). Grandchildren: Michelle (Aaron), Kimberlee, Danielle (Grant) Ackerman, Ashley (Mike) Hadbavny, Codi Beam (Josh Whitehead), Garrett, Rachel (Randy), Laura, Jake, Collin, Cye, Alyssa, Autumn, Emrys. Great-grandchildren: London, Axel, Emma, James, Athena, Sewid.
He was blessed with close friends: Roy English, Keith Olson, Wayne Lush, and Rick Klassen. Their friendship was very valued by him.
His family remember him as a kind and adventurous man. Growing up, they were off every weekend: camping, fishing, dirt bikes, quads, boats, and target shooting. Although a quiet man in later years he loved his family deeply and would do anything he could for them. He preferred country living and avoided large towns and cities. He loved being in the outdoors, from driving a converted bus camping down the coast to Mexico, lots of camping and fishing trips, and weekend drives to nowhere in particular. Two weeks before he passed, Heather and Rob enjoyed a five-day camping/fishing trip with good friends Rick and Janice Klassen to Greeny Lake just outside Lac la Hache, B.C.
Rob had many wonderful, work experiences in his life, such as: crewmember of the Coast Guard ship Estevan, commercial fisherman, shingle sawyer, millwright, boat hauling, and pilot vehicle driver.
The family would like to thank all the nurses in the ER and Acute care of 100 Mile Hospital and to Dr. Cranston, who was the attending physician at that time. Your kindness and compassion were most appreciated. The community is very lucky to have all of you.
At Rob’s request, there will be no formal service. A celebration of life for family and close friends may be held later, on Vancouver Island. If you wish, please donate in his memory to the charity of your choice.
Rest easy now my love.
