Richard passed away peacefully on October 27th, 2014 at Saint-Mary's hospital, surrounded by his wife Denise and his daughter Lynda, after several courageous bouts with cancer over a seven year period at the age of 81. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 53 years, Denise (Beaulieu), his daughter Lynda and son Steven, his son-law Lorne Schwartz and daughter-in-law Susan Christie. He was the proud Grand-Papa to Justin, Chloe, Ayla, Megan and Kaitlyn. He will be missed by his group of friends whom he looked forward to being with every week as well as by his closest friends Alan, Brian, and John whose many visits to St-Mary's brought him a ton of joy. He and Denise were very fortunate to have the dedicated support of Ellie and Stan Schwartz throughout.
A very heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at St-Mary's hospital who did their utmost to make "Mr. Bell's" last 3 months as comfortable and happy as could be.
