Richard is one I will not forget I got to know Richard going to the bowling office, meeting, tournament. The one thing

I will always remember is all the times he was seated beside me at meetings awards and worked at the tournaments.

I first met Richard back in the 80’s when I joined a bowling league he ran with his wife. Went on to serve on the GTTBA board with Richard. All those years he never changed - older yes - but always kind and friendly. Everybody was glad to see him - one of the good guys - one of a kind. We will all miss him.

I pass my condolences to the Doucette family on the passing of Richard. As a member of the Greater Toronto Tenpin Bowling Association, I have worked with Richard for many years. I enjoyed working with him in the office or at the bowling tournaments, and occasionally bowling with him at these same tournaments. Joyce had also worked with him during her time on the Greater Toronto Women's Bowling Association where they shared the office with the Men's Association at that time. It was always a pleasure. He will be missed by many people he crossed paths with. May he rest in peace.

Richard was such a gentle man, always willing to help anyone, and was loved by so many. For over 30 years he served on the Greater Toronto Tenpin Bowling Association and we will never forget all the work he did for the Association and the bowlers. We were all so lucky to have known him and have so many great memories. He touched so many. We will dearly miss him. Our thoughts and prayers go to all the family.

We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Richard and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Doucette family. I first met Richard while we were both working for the City (Borough) of Etobicoke back in the 1980's. He was a mentor to myself and many others as he possessed a great knowledge of all things mechanical and electrical. I remember many occasions when someone had taken something apart and could not get it back together in which case Richard was called in to put things back together and get it into working order again.

It was a pleasure to know Richard as a colleague and a friend. He was known for his great laugh that was very contagious especially when he was sharing one of his many stories about P.E.I. Richard was a man with a great heart and loved his family very much. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Although we only met you a handful of times your strength and love shined when u were around your family. Your sweet gentle manner, the smile on your face when Jordan was next to you is something I'll always remember. You will be so greatly missed but knowing your with the love of your life makes losing u a little more easier. If ya see my dad I'm sure you both will cause some trouble up there. Heaven just got much more enjoyable and knowing your watching over Cathy, Nick and Jordan makes earth seem a little more safer.
Much love
The Tucker Family

What to say? My heart goes out to the entire family. Its never easy to say goodbye to a family member and I know there's nothing that can be said that makes it easier.

I'm 45 yrs old and knew Richard for pretty much my entire life. He gave me my first bowling trophy ever at 3 yrs old. By the time is was in my 30's he was giving me the awards to hand out to children.

He and my parents bowled together for many years and remained friends until their passings. Always a kind word, a friendly smile and would stop to chat anytime.

He will be greatly missed. I don't say goodbye, but instead I say see you again one day, when we all bowl 300 again.
