September 26, 1944 – December 1, 2018
Richard passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on December 1, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife Jane Wilde; daughters Kate Fish (Chad Herbert) and Norah Fish (Dave Pottle).
Richard was a hand logger, commercial fisherman on the “Norah Flynn”, and BC Ferries deckhand. He loved being on the ocean and outside at his homes on Porcher Island, Dodge Cove and finally Comox . He was a freestyle cook and is known for his love of daffodils and planting garlic. In the winter you could find him skating up at Wahl Lake.
Sincere thanks to the expert cancer caregivers in Victoria and Comox, especially Dr. Adam Thompson and the Clinic staff and everyone at Comox Hospital Cancer Care Center, Comox Rexall Pharmacy and Home Care Nursing.
Richard was an avid reader and a Board Member of the Prince Rupert Library for many years. If you are considering a donation , Prince Rupert Public Library, 101-6th Ave West, Prince Rupert, BC, V8J 1Y9.
He would often remind us, “It doesn’t take much to be happy.”
