Vincent Richardson

Passed in: Oakville, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: April 12th, 2015

Passed away peacefully at Oakville, Ont., on April 12, 2015, at the age of 86 after a short illness.
Predeceased by his beloved wife Ruth in 1996 and sisters, Pauline and Florence, both of Nova Scotia; dearly loved and missed by daughters, Susan (Richardson) Roser (Hugh) and Sandi Richardson (Paul Backwell); grandchildren, Jason (Joanne), Julie and Jaimie Roser, Shannon (Cayer) Stevens (Will) and Matthew Cayer (Karissa); great-grandsons, Zackery Roser, Liam and Danny Steven; niece Sheila MacKinnon and nephew David Brett.
Vince was born at Sydney, Cape Breton Island, the son of Alfred Richardson and Florence MacGillivrary.
His third great-grandfather, Rev. George Richardson founded the Baptist Church in Sydney. Vince moved to Ontario in the late 1940s, moving to Oakville in 1955. He was involved with the Oakville Minor Hockey Association as a coach between 1963 and 1970. Vince retired from Ontario Hydro in 1987 as the autobody fabricator supervisor at the Kipling location. Vince was a great storyteller, had a terrific sense of humour, enjoyed playing the guitar and when he went fishing, his fish was always the biggest, even when it wasn’t. He was always a Cape Breton boy at heart and never forgot his roots.
The family would like to thank Dr. Joanna Tang, his nurses, Eileen, Asma and Silas; support workers Stephanie, Leslie and Ioulia, and the caring staff at the Ian Anderson House Hospice who made his last days so peaceful.
Services were held at the Kopriva Taylor Funeral Home in Oakville, April 15, 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ian Anderson House, 430 Winston Churchill Blvd., Oakville, Ont., L6J 7X2 would be greatly appreciated by the family.
