It is with a deep sense of sorrow and loss that our family announces the sudden passing of our beautiful boy, Iain Robert Richards in June 2021 at the age of 20.
He will be sadly missed by his parents Anne and Maury Richards, his older brother Erik (Frances) and his younger brother Sami. He is survived by his grandmothers Peggy Dodson (Ron), Carole Olafson (Keith) and grandfathers Bruce Morrison (Joyce) and Don Richards (Esone). He is lovingly remembered by his Auntie Nairn Dreilich (Troy, Kaine, Mag) and Uncle Rob Morrison (Jackie, Jordan, Abby).
During his short life Iain enjoyed travelling with his family to beaches, mountains and forests. He loved outdoor activities like downhill skiing and paddling on rivers and oceans. He was passionate about music, books and movies – devouring them with a desire to understand how they were all connected together. He spent happy times with his friends and brothers playing games both on the tabletop and online.
Iain loved his brothers with all his heart – in lieu of flowers please consider donations to the following charities which support their health:
