My earliest memory of Richard came in the 80's with the need for our first band photo. We were met by a unique and charming English gentleman who took us trudging through the back alleys of King St. East, and took a photo a that would be our calling card on posters, t-shirts and records, for years to come. Another great memory and quality of Richard was his love of nature, and his ability to capture it on film. He and Augusta created a lush jungle oasis on their roof top home on Queen St. East. He always looked so happy surrounded by his plants who equally loved him - judging by their size and health.
Augusta, we are so very sorry. Our deepest sympathies to you and Richard's family. Richard was an amazing, interesting and talented man. A wonderful person gone too soon.

Daddy, you were the best dad a daughter could ask for. You were loving, funny, generous, smart, kind, talented and cool. I am so incredibly proud of you and all your accomplishments. There were sooo many!! You lived a full and colourful life that was cut way too short. My friends always used to comment on how cool you were and tell me how much cooler you were than me. They were totally right! Im so happy that you and Mum got to walk me down the aisle and that we got to have our father-daughter dance to You Can Never Tell by Chuck Berry from Pulp Fiction. A dance we always did when I was a kid. I always show the video of us dancing to Jacob and play our song. Im so happy that you got to meet Jacob. He is so lucky to have had you as a Grandpa and we will make sure he knows all about you! I know GaGa (Augusta) and everyone else will tell him lots of stories about you! We have named the bunny that you got him for Christmas, Grandpa Bunny so you are always with him. Its also so nice to look down at Jacob and see his Picton lips.

I am heartbroken that you are no longer here with us. I find it extremely hard to believe that I wont have you here with me in the years to come. I miss your voice, your hugs, your ability to make me laugh and most of all you. I am so incredibly proud to be your daughter and will make sure you continue to live on through my life every day. I love you so much daddy and I want to thank you for being my dad.
Love always,
Snods

Dear Richard,

Three weeks later and I'm still finding it hard to accept your passing. I shall always cherish the years we worked and travelled together, the reciprocal teaching we shared, our mutual love of art and photography, the excesses and the laughter. You, my friend, and your excellent work will long be remembered.

Rest in peace,

Bert
