George Richard’s Obituary
It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Chaffey announces his peaceful passing on August 21, 2019 in his 85th year with family surrounded at his side. Richard leaves to mourn with fond and loving memories his wife of 57 years, Louise (Butler), his children John (Natalia), Carla (Dave), Brian (Michelle), Janice (Doug), grandchildren Megan and Joshua Bonnell and Rebecca and Andrew Myrden. Richard will also remain in the hearts of his brother Frank (Lorna) and sister Jane (Eugene), along with a wide circle of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Predeceased by his parents Octavius and Pearl and brother Calvin. Born in Corner Brook, NL, Richard retired at 55 years old after working 38 years with the Newfoundland Telephone Company. Following his retirement, he worked part-time with Frontec for NORAD. Richard cherished his time spent with family at friends at his cabin in Boom Siding and travelling with Louise. He was a longstanding and dedicated member of the Shriners, the Masonic Order, the Kinsmen and the Telephone Pioneers of America. The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the staff, nurses and doctors at the WMRH intensive care, stroke and palliative care units for their kind and compassionate care.
