RICHARDSON, Robert Frank

May 21, 1931 – May 25, 2013. With sadness we announce the passing of Robert “Bob” Richardson, a long time resident of White Rock. Bob will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 57 years, Jill, his “baby” brother Philip of Summerland, his 4 children Peter (Bev), Pat (Neal), Sandra (Harry) and Nancy (John) and his 6 grandchildren Adam, Tessa, Glen, Wendy, Paul, and Madeline. Bob was born and raised in Vancouver, studied Engineering at UBC, and had a long and successful career as a Hydrographic Surveyor for the DPW, Canada. He loved the outdoors and was most at home when boating, fishing, golfing, or gardening. He was a founding member of the Crescent Beach Yacht Club, and the Training Officer for the White Rock Power Squadron for many years. After retirement he took great pleasure in woodworking and was a “handyman extraordinaire”. He was a keen observer of nature and was generous with his expertise and stories. He appreciated all his friends and colleagues who crossed his path throughout his life. Special thanks to the nurses, doctors and staff of the Cardiology Unit at SMH for their kind care. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Victory Memorial Funeral Centre, 14831 – 28 Ave., Surrey on Mon., June 10/13 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in his name to the BC Branch of the Kidney Foundation or the BC Heart & Stroke Foundation. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522
