It is with great sadness we share that Richard Hayden let go from this world peacefully surrounded by his family March 20, 2016.
Richard is survived by his wife Beverly Hayden, Sons Jason Hayden, Joe Hayden (Germaine) Daughter Gena-Marie Williamson (Ron), Grandchildren Kyson and Alea-Jaye Williamson, Lisa-Marie Hayden, Great Grandchildren Kyra and Damek Hayden, Brothers Roger Hayden (Marlene) and George Hayden (Katherine) as well as much beloved Cousins, Nieces and Nephews and lifelong friends.
Although Richard will be greatly missed by all those whom he leaves behind, Richard leaves a legacy of love and compassion. His pride was his family and his passion was the outdoors. Richard found his solace in the mountains, trees and streams. Many memories were made and shared throughout his years around the crackling of a warm fire and stepping quietly through the bush as he tracked and hunted with his family. Richard was a traveling man and often would look at his wife and say “time to hit the road” and off they would go on an adventure (most often to his hometown in St Lazare Manitoba) where he would always stop and see his family along the way.
With his sword drawn, Richard battled with pancreatic cancer with courage and strength until it was finally time to go and sit with his Heavenly Father.
Richard will be missed, he will be remembered,and his traditions
will be carried forward by the family he leaves behind.
Richard will forever be loved and cherished.
