January 30, 1940 – March 20, 2019
Richard leaves behind his loving wife of 59 years, Heather von Brendel, and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Longshoreman and avid fisherman, Richard could build and fix anything. He was a hard working man who was always there for his family and friends. No service by request. Donations to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation in lieu of flowers.
God grant that I may live
To fish until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray.
When in the lord’s safe landing net,
I’m peacefully asleep,
That in his mercy I’ll be judged
Good enough to keep.
Farewell Barclay Sound … The Seawolf
