Richard, was always happy go lucky when I'd see him in the hallways of the apartment building.
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting his son, but his daughters were not usually far behind bouncing along with their Dad.
The girls like Richard; were always smiling and polite.
Richard for sure; must have been and always will be so proud of them.
My deepest condolences to his children, family and close friends.
Rest peacefully now Richard.

Richard was a good friend. I met him in high school along with his sisters. He was very kind and kept the jokes going. We kept in touch through social media liking each others' words of wisdom, jokes, pictures of family times. We're going to miss you bud.

Richard stayed with myself and daughter until he lifted himself up for a better future. He went to school and pick my daughter up to travel back home together. He had a caring heart for the family.
One day he wanted to join a group and travel to Guyana. A Jewish group called Vea'havta. Some weekend's he would be passing out clothes and food for the homeless.
Then the time came to go volunteer out of the country and travel to Guyana. The morning came and decided not to go after all. I was really upset towards him and throw water on his face while he was pretending to sleep. He still went back to bed and his ride to the airport was waiting outside. Driver stated he couldn't wait too long. I then flipped his mattress and he went flying. He got up so fast and grabbed his suitcase and off he went.
Three weeks came and came home. He had smiles and sincerely thank me on how I pushed him to go.
He stated how we where lucky to be living comfortable in a Country like Canada.
Back in Guyana he dug wells and took care of farm animals. He would also helped make gardens for vegatables for the village.
I told him that I was proud and honored he did all that for a Country that didn't have the luxury like we had
He said what should I do next with a smile. I looked at him and said"How about the Army's he walked away and muttered eeeeeee.
