Peacefully at the F.J. Davey Home with his family by his side on Friday, September 20, 2019 at the age of 84.
Beloved husband of the late Jean Ferris (nee Humphries) and the late Tarja Ferris (nee Rutledge). Loving father of Damon (Maddalena), Jeany White (Patrick) and Bob (Jennifer). Proud grandpa of Daniel, David, Miranda, Shane, Ty, Brett and Sean Johnston- Ferris. Dear brother of Brian (Carol) and the late Verne (late Pat).
Dad enjoyed a full life and taught us how to appreciate the little things in life and respect the outdoors. Our parents taught us to be ourselves and how to live an independent life of love and laughter.
At Richard’s request there will be no funeral service. A private family gathering will take place at a later date. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington Street E. 705- 759-2522).
Memorial contributions (payable by cheque) to the F.J. Davey Home would be appreciated by the family.
Special thanks to all the staff at the Davey Home for the exceptional and loving care that our father was surrounded by each and every day.
