Allan William RICHARDSON

Richie passed away peacefully on April 10, 2019 at the age of 74 after yet another battle with cancer.

He was a pressman for over 40 years; 35 of those years with the Calgary Herald. He also worked for the Albertan.

Richie enjoyed his retirement. He was always busy. His hands were never idle. He loved being in his garage … fixing, sorting, tinkering. He was a back yard mechanic extraordinaire. He was proud to be a “Snow Angel”.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Kim Harms and her family; Sylvia Carter, his partner for over 40 years, and her two sons, Colin and Scott, and their families. He is also survived by his sister Kathy and his brother Gordon.

Please join us on May 4th at 2pm at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Eastside Memorial Chapel), 5388 Memorial Drive NE for a celebration. Please come with a story to share about Richie (Al, Allan, Punk). We know many of you have some great ones.

Casual dress please. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations to the charity of your choice gratefully accepted.

    I remember Grandpa Richie’s smile and his laugh because they were so contagious. If he was smiling and laughing, everyone around him was smiling and laughing. Most importantly though, I remember how kind and caring he was. He always went out of his way to do something nice for someone else before thinking of himself. That was one of his greatest qualities. I will never forget. Thinking of you during this difficult time.
