Special thanks to the staff at Laurel's Lake Residence who provided excellent care during his final few months of life. Their kindness and compassion are greatly appreciated. A funeral service and reception was held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, April 18, 2019 in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville. A private family burial took place in the Willowbank Cemetery, Wolfville. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Richard to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia, the Nature Conservancy of Canada or a local sports team.
