1934 – 2016
On the evening of Sunday, December 18, 2016, Richard Edward Desrocher passed away peacefully at home with his wife by his side. Richard was born in Plattsburgh, New York on April 28, 1934.
Richard met his beloved wife, Wilhelmina (Mia) in Montreal and they were married on September 7, 1974. Richard’s most
outstanding quality was his loyalty to family and friends. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to whoever needed it. He will be missed by many.
Left to mourn his passing are his loving wife, Mia and his son Lincoln (Sal) and his two grandsons, Matthew and Sasha. Also left behind are his step-son Martin van der Aa (Debbie) and his step grandsons, Matthew and Darren. Richard has gone to heaven to be with all of his family and friends who are waiting for him there.
