Reginald Richard, 87, of West Hartford, beloved husband of 61 years to Rose May (Soucy) Richard, passed away on Friday, November 13, 2020 in the comfort of his home surrounded by family. Born in Ste. Anne De Kent N.B., Canada, son of the late Cliff and Emma (Maillett) Richard, he came to USA in 1957 where he met his Canadian wife in Hartford, CT. Reginald worked as a machinist until he was 75 years old. He built a log cabin from a kit with family and friends in Otis, MA., and it was a country escape enjoyed for many years.

Reginald was a proud member of the Canadian Army and Knights of Columbus. He loved his faith. Shortly before he left us he said “I’ll see you some day in Heaven, I have lived a very long good life, I did the best I knew how".

Besides his wife, he is survived by two sons, Paul Richard and David Richard and his wife Rose; three grandchildren, Matthew, Eric, Justin and step grandchildren, Amanda and Jacob; Matthew's mother, Vickie; a special nephew, Andre and his wife Cecile. He also leaves the Soucy Family, Theresa Richard of B.C. Canada, and Marianna Richard Cocagne of N.B, Canada.

He was predeceased by a dear son, Jim; his brothers, Albert, Joseph, Alonzo, Aquila, Emile, Edeouard and sisters, Laurette, Marie, Frida and Margaret.
A special thank you to the Hospice Team from Hartford Health Care for all of their support.

My condolences for Rose May and the Richard and Soucy family's. Reggie was a great guy and I always enjoyed talking to him, we shared conversations about being Machinists and life! He always had some good advice and new right from wrong! I will miss him and he will be missed be many! Thoughts and prayers for your family's. From Mike Livingstone.

My heart is sad today for your friends, your family, your sons, your grandsons and your loving wife (who totally enjoyed spoiling you) because I know the space you leave behind cannot be filled with anyone else.
I will miss your sense of humor most. I will never forget going up to your cabin in Otis Massachusetts with the girls from Mon Ami for the weekend. It was a true gift that Jimmy was there too.
The ride up was just the start of a week end full of silliness and laughter.I don’t know how we ever found the place in the dark! ( well at least the road because RoseMay had to come get us with the four wheel drive car)
We all enjoyed your accordion that week end, along with RoseMays home cooking on a wood stove. Jimmy even did some kind of weird dance I couldn’t figure out that first night.
I guess we were all overdue for sometime to be in the woods. Play games and just relax.
The ride home was quiet because we were tired from all the fun we had.
It doesn’t get much better than that.
What a blessing.
Well I hope I made you smile... because I do whenever I think of it.
The physical part of a good man can leave this earth, but love is the only immortal thing we leave behind. So I know your spirit will live on in that way.
I pray that God will continue to bless, and comfort your family at this difficult time and that going forward they will recall many other memories that bring a smile to their lips

Mon Oncle Reginald et Ma tante Rosemay - We always hoped that they would be visiting New Brunswick at the same time
that mom was bringing us (her four children) to visit each summer. We always had fun with our fun-loving and full of life
uncle Reginald! He always made us laugh and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. He and aunt Rosemay were such a
wonderful loving couple. They came to Ontario to my wedding which made me so happy, and we had the pleasure of their company only four years ago when they visited my mom (Uncle Reginald's sister Margaret) at Easter. Mom was in a nursing
home. Such a surprise and loving memory for us all!
Loved you both so much ma tante Rosemay for your thoughtfulness.
Bless you and your family ma tante.
Love always. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Growing up, it was always so obvious to us how much Pape loved his youngest brother, Oncle Reginald. Even though they lived in different countries, they very much stayed connected either by frequent telephone calls or visits. He and Tante Rosemay returned home often for special family events - whether in the Edmundston area or in the Moncton area and we loved seeing them. Rest in Peace Once Reginald - I am sure you and Pape have lots of catching up to do! Love You - Noella, Blaine and Family.
