Richard along with his partner Ernie operated Rem Construction Ltd. for forty some years, making a lot of life long friends along the way. They believed a job worth doing was worth doing well.

Richard was a member of Mount Brenton and loved playing golf, fishing up Island, travelling down south with our friends, Saturday night group dinners and country dancing.

Richard will be greatly missed by all who got to know and love him, especially his “special mum” Isabelle.

As per his wishes, no service will be held.
