To the family of Richard Hancock - our thoughts are with you on your loss of a wonderful man...I remember meeting Richard for the first time when he came into see me at the volunteer driving program in 2004. He was still getting around well by himself but he was making plans for staying living independently in his own home. He was always very warm and so appreciative of the volunteer drivers especially so of Robert C, John and Ray that always drove him to CNIB. He will be really missed by those around him as a really interesting person to talk to......Anna Der, Executive Director, Seniors Assisted Transportation Society of Greater Edmonton (SATS)
Sending our sincere condolences, and keeping you close in our thoughts,
Lyn & Ron West & family
Sending my sympathy and prayers in the loss of your father Richard's physical presence in your lives. In reading his obituary, he certainly lived a full, rich and rewarding life! I will make a donation to the CNIB in his memory, reflecting his giving nature and ongoing desire to help others.
David, Janet and family,
We offer our condolences in the passing of your dear father. May God's peace and comfort surround and sustain you.
David, Janet and Hancock Family;
Please accept our condolences on the passing of your dear father Richard. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. As a fur trader for the Hudsons Bay Company, he truly was a rich part of our western Canadian history that we're all proud of! May he rest peace.
Dear Hancock Family,I wish to pay tribute to Richard ,one of the valued pioneers of this country. Though he and my father,a hunter/trapper from north western Saskatchewan, likely never met he would have played an intigral part in our lives. My father's furs were always sent to Edmonton before being shipped east.It was an era that called for great fortitude from our forefathers.
My sincere condolances,
David, Kathleen -- all of the family is in our prayers at this time. Your father was a remarkable man, and his passing is grievous. Friends are holding you in their hearts right now.
Robert & Brenda, my sincerest sympathy to you on the passing of Robert's dad. God's Blessings.
David & Janet,
So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing! Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May your Dad's memory live from generation to generation!
I am very sorry to hear of your father's passing. My father-in-law, Douglas McMullin was also a fur trader and ran a mink farm in the peace country before the war. I wonder if their paths crossed. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. With deepest sympathy, Marg.(Jeff) Liam, Brendan (Ashley) and Neil (Krysalynne) McMullin
Dear Kathy, John and David, Sincere sympathy at this saddest of time for you and your family. Will hold you in our parayers.
Sincerely, Sandra and Jim McHardy
I had the pleasure to work with Dick at the Bay,Dawson Creek, B.C. 1975-76. He was a real gentleman to work with. When we would get together with his wife Kay, over a cup of coffee, they were proud to talk of their children. They both spent countless hours in their gardens. It was a pleasure to know them for their kindness.
Our deepest condolence to you and your family. God bless you all.
Love and Prayers,
Denis, Perla, Richard and Michelle
