It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Rudolph Ernest Richter on November 9, 2023, at the age of 96.
He is pre-deceased by his wife, Doreen Mary (nee Snowdy) in 2009, as well as his son Robert Fredrik (Bobby) in 1983 and his sister Gwendolyn Victoria Sinclair in 2022.
He will be lovingly remembered by his sons Don (Erin), David (Suzi); by his grandchildren, Megan (Chris), Madison (Brent) and Mark, as well as his nieces and nephews.
Ernie was born in Golden Bay and was raised in Seven Sisters Falls. He was employed by the Hudson Bay Fur Trading Company, working at several locations across Canada including Goose Bay, Labrador and Lynn Lake, Manitoba where he first met Doreen, his future wife.
Ernie and Doreen married in 1955 and moved to Winnipeg where they raised their family. Ernie had a 35 year career with Canada Safeway, retiring in 1991. Ernie loved sports and loved to play golf. He loved the Winnipeg Jets and the Toronto Blue Jays. Throughout his retirement Ernie remained very active.
Many thanks to the staff at the Vista Park Personal Care Home for all the care and compassion they showed towards our father and many thanks to Gord for his unending support and friendship.
