VANDERMEULEN, Richard. Predeceased by father Andy. Sadly missed by mom Rita; brother Herbert (Bev); niece Aviva; nephews Ari and Noah and other relatives and friends. Richard lived in White Rock for 45 years. He attended Simon Cunningham School and The Annex. He worked at Clover Valley Industries in Cloverdale for 29 years. He was an avid reader, liked to tell jokes and do impressions. He was a chatterbox. He had a sunny character and seldom complained about his handicap although life was not always easy for him. He lived in group homes since the age of 23 and we would like to thank all the staff who worked with him over those years especially the staff at Hainer House where he has lived for the past couple of years. They have attended to him with much loving care since his health deteriorated. Thanks to Dr. David Anderson for his care and understanding. Thanks to the friendly people at the dog park. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Semiahmoo House Society. A Celebration of Richard’s Life will be held on Friday, November 19, 2010 at 3 pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831-28 Ave, Surrey, BC.
