It is with great sadness that the family of Michael Richard, announce the sudden death of their beloved husband, father, and grandfather at age 65, on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen, NB.

Mike was a remarkable person who had the biggest heart touching the lives of many others in his community and left us all far too soon; the impact will be felt for years to come.

Mike was a talented athlete, known for his many years of playing softball and hockey, having a true love and passion for sports. His favourite teams were the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Maple Leafs and I am sure he would want you all to root them on during this playoff season.

He was the biggest jokester with an infectious sense of humor always being up for a laugh, a man who prided himself on making others around him feel important and welcome in any situation that they may be in.

Above anything else Mike was always a family man first making his three beautiful girls the centre of his world. He loved nothing more than spending time and supporting them with everything they did while always having the biggest smile on his face. His love for them knew no bounds, and his memory will live on through the love that they shared.

Mike survived by his loving wife Brenda of 43 years,  beautiful daughter Stephanie, son-in-law Travis, darling granddaughter Ashlynn Rose, mother-in-law, Lela Hastey, aunts and uncles;  Jim Richard, Fred Richard (Marie), Florida Eastman, Sophie Richard, Eric Richard (Doreen), brothers-in-law;  Delbert Hastey, Gary Hastey (Linda), Doug Hastey (Levonne), Irving Hastey, David Hastey (Viola), sister-in law Edith Belyea, several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Mike was predeceased by his parents Edmond and Rose Richard, father-in-law David Hastey, maternal and paternal grandparents, and his beloved golden lab Sadie Girl.

Services will be held to honor his life and legacy at The S.O. Mehan & Son Funeral Home Ltd., 23 Main Street, St. Stephen, N.B.  on Monday, May 6, 2024 at 2 PM and we hope that it can bring comfort and peace to all who attend. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, May 5, 2024 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM.

Interment at Pomeroy Ridge Cemetery, Pomeroy Ridge, N.B.
