With heavy and broken hearts, we announce the death of our beloved son, father, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin.

Richard Bhola Mangar, 62, passed away on January 8, 2021. Born on February 1, 1958, he grew up in Providence, Guyana. Richard is preceded in death by his father David Mangar, and brothers David Mangar Jr. and Joseph Mangar. He is survived by his mother Sukhie Mangar, sisters Rosemary, Deborah and Roxanne; mother of his children Sharon Mangar, sons Justin Mangar and Joshua Mangar. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Richard had two passions in life - his sons and cricket. He was very proud of his sons and loved spending time with them.

He had a along outstanding career as a Cricketer. From his early pioneering days at Providence on the East Bank Of Demerara showed an immense potential as a batsman of genuine class and during his formative years and thereafter did not disappoint, but rather transformed his natural inclination as a batsman to become a genuine all-rounder with the propensity to instill swing and movement in a new ball with unerring accuracy to the detriment of all opposing batsmen. Such was his natural talent that he was selected to represent the East Bank Sugar Estates combined team at the age of 16 where he remained a permanent fixture until he migrated to Canada in his early 20’s.

Once migrated to Canada, Richard played for Cavaliers sports club in the Toronto District league where he was one of the most feared bowlers not only in the Premier League but also when he played representatively for the Toronto combined league. As a pace bowler he was often unplayable. He made many batsmen run from the crease. Such was his brilliance as evidenced by a performance of 7 wickets for 2 runs in a league semi-final that he was awarded numerous accolades such as MVP, Best Bowler, and Outstanding All Rounder.

Richard will be forever loved and deeply missed by his family, relatives and friends. May he rest in loving peace.

To my dearest cousin Richard, I am very saddened to hear of your passing. You will be greatly missed. May God take care of you in heaven and rid you of all your pain and suffering. Richard was 1 of 19 cousins that lived next door to each other in Providence, Guyana. He loved his hat and shades and always dressed in style. Each Easter the boys would make some of the biggest kites and his late brother, Joey would use razor blades to cut other people's kite.
At this time I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Richard. May God continue to bless each one of you. Rest in peace my loving cousin until we meet again.

Love from Sandra, Caleb, Chelsea, and Christian
