Richard was born April 2, 1928 in Kelowna, BC and passed away peacefully at the Brandt’s Creek Mews

on November 17, 2015.  Long-time orchardist in the Kelowna Mission area.  Richard loved his property, and was especially touched when the upper portion which became developed into residential housing had a park set aside in the family name. Due to his fond memories and family outings over the years, what is now known as “Kuiper’s Peak” was definitely Richard’s favorite place.  He will be remembered for his hard work ethic, his keen intellect and for being an avid world traveller. At his request there will be no formal service.  He will be laid to rest in the family grave to rejoin his late wife Edith who predeceased him in 2012.  He is survived by his 2 children: daughter Charlotte (Karl) Hammann and his son Vincent (Connie).  A special thank you to Dr. Hignell and especially the wonderful and caring staff at the Brandt’s Creek Mews for all the love and care they showed our dad over the past 4 years.
