Obituary of Robert J. Richard

Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
NORWOOD--Robert (Bob) John Richard was born December 18, 1948 in Buffalo, New York to the late Carl and Doris Richard. Bob is survived by his daughter, Katie Anne (Richard) Kathman. After attending Florida State University, Bob resided back in Buffalo, New York. Laidlaw Transit, is where Bob carried out his successful career and met his late wife of 28 years, Jacqueline (Barter) Richard. Bob and Jacqueline married on April 30, 1994 and relocated a short time later to Norwood, New York in 1997. The long time Richard residence at 252 County Route 48 was a regular gathering place for fun times; friends and family would travel from far and wide to visit regularly. Bob was a laidback soul who enjoyed snowmobiling trips, quiet early mornings and was proud of his Irish heritage. On Saturday, March 23, 2024 Bob passed away at Canon-Potsdam hospital. Bob's last days were spent with his dear friend, Pastor Leon Sweeney, by his side. To Bob's wishes, his ashes will be scattered on Lake Ontario for his final resting place. "Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Everything remains as it was. The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no sorrow in your tone. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again." Henry Scott Holland
