Richard Gooch passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital on June 20, 2011 at the age of 78.
Richard will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 50+ years, Joan; children Stephen (Tracy), Kathryn (Tim)
Williams, and Leigh Schlief; grandchildren Stephanie,
Danielle, Ernest, Christopher, Michael, and Bronwyn; great grandchild Riley; and his special companion Bartholomew.
It made Rick happy to be involved, and he used his
carpentry skills often – he was always working on a ‘project or two’, as well as passing along his skills to his
many students. We are sure he is building a new
home in heaven now.
Rick was a generous, thoughtful and caring man, and was very dedicated in all that he did. He was well loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A private family celebration of Richard’s life will be held.
