Richard Bruce Webster, 73, passed away on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 in Vancouver, BC surrounded by his family. A celebration of his life will be held in early 2014. Born on August 25, 1940 in Vancouver, Richard spent his early years in Aldergrove, BC and moved to Hope, BC with his family when he was ten, eventually raising his own family there. Richard had many dear friends in Hope, some of whom he had known since grade school, and greatly cherished their companionship. In recent years he traveled to Mexico during the winter, enjoying long bike rides, walks on the beach, and the friends he made there. He gave generously to his community, both in Hope and Mexico, and was always helping those in need. Family was very important to Richard, and one of his favourite pastimes was being with his grandchildren. Richard is survived by his three daughters: April Webster (California), Karen Webster and her husband Jeremy Hilton (Vancouver, BC), Marlo Webster and her partner David Kellum (Agassiz, BC); his grandchildren: Brooke Kellum, Samuel Hilton-Webster, and Ava Kellum; his sister Patricia Crowell (Abbotsford, BC), and his brother David Webster (Agassiz, BC); his nieces and nephews; and the rest of his family and many friends. He was predeceased by his mother, Alice (Wilson) Webster.
