RICHARDS, Stanley (Yahoda) - October 19, 1928 - August 6, 2017
Stanley Richards (Yahoda) passed away peacefully into God’s presence on Sunday August 6, 2017.
He was preceded by his loving wife Elaine of 56 Years who passed away in November 2015 and is survived by their children: His son Norman (wife Cyndy) and his daughter Beverly.
His five grandchildren: Jennifer (husband Doug), Gordon (wife Michelle), Graham (wife Megan), Christopher (finance Michelle) and Lisa.
His seven great grandchildren: Owen, Carter, Addison, Davis, Madelyn, Tenley and Lincoln.
Stanley loved the days of the cottage, his hunting expeditions and his gardening ventures as well as being a part of his grand children’s lives. He will be missed as a husband, a father and as Grandpa “Gramps”. His family is left sharing memories of the love he had for his loved ones.
Past years have brought a poor quality of life, however this did transformed him into a godly man: staying positive even in life’s difficulties as he allowed the Lord’s spirit to indwell him. This is only a temporary parting as we will see him in heaven and until that time, always will he be loved and never forgotten for his deep love for all of us and the influence and participation he had in our lives.
A celebration of his life will be held on Thursday August 10, 2017 at MOUNT LAWN FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY located at: 21 Garrard Road, Whitby, ON L1N-3K4, 905-443-3376.
