BROUGHTON, Richard "Dick" William  -  It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts, we announce the passing of a beloved and cherished husband, father, grandfather, Poppa, and a friend to many, on Thursday, November 17, 2022.

Dick was born November 16, 1931 and is survived by his wife of 66 years, Marilyn; his three children, Catherine (Paul), Grant (Susan) and Dianne (Greg).

Adoring grandfather of Richard (Melissa), Amanda (Lee), Matthew, Katrina (Brandon), and Jon (Bev); and his greatgrandchildren, Logan, Cody, Hudson and Ben.

Loving brother of Catherine Chambers and the late Ted and Jim. Dick had a long and successful career in the general insurance industry, in which he was highly regarded by his peers and staff. He always had time for his family and has left each of us with treasured memories.

An avid lover of the outdoors, he loved his time in nature (except the squirrels raiding his bird feeder!). In his words: "I covered a lot of ground, and had a good run".

His passing has left a hole in our hearts, but we are grateful and thankful we had him in our lives.

A Celebration of Richard's Life will be held at Mount Lawn Funeral Home & Cemetery, 21 Garrard Road, Whitby, on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. with memories and tributes at 4:30 p.m.

At the family's request, all in attendance are asked to please wear a mask.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a CHARITY of Your Choice would be appreciated.
