Richard was a gentle servant of God; serving his family and community with love and respect. Active in his ministries through the Church, he lived his faith participating in RCIA, Marriage Preparation, St Vincent de Paul, Alpha and Eucharistic Ministry. Richard was proud of his life career as a grocery store manager with Steinberg Company, Miracle Food Mart, A&P, Herbies, and Rexall. He enjoyed baseball, golf and playing horseshoes at Wildwood by the Lake, Morpeth. Another favourite pass time was spending hours washing and polishing his vehicles which gave him great joy.

Due to Covid Restrictions, a small private family service will take place at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll. Richard touched many people in his life, so a celebration of life will be held later.

I worked for Richard at the Miracle Food Mart at Oxford & Highbury in London back in the 1970's while I was in high school and college. He was a great boss and I really enjoyed working for him. So hard to believe he was just down the road from me all these years as I live quite close to Wildwood. Would have enjoyed visiting Richard! My thought and prayers are with Richard and his family.
