RICHARDSON, John Richardson - (originally from Leicester UK, 40 years in Ajax Ontario and most recently Newcastle, Ontario) passed away peacefully in his home on May 19, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.
He is at peace now after a heroic battle with F.T.D. and A.L.S.
John leaves behind his beautiful wife of 48 years Mary and two adoring daughters Joanne and Jackie; his son-in-law Roy and two gorgeous grandchildren Dillon and Sinead - who were the apple of his eye and always made him smile.
He also leaves behind his beloved sisters and brothers in Ireland, Australia and Canada and many nieces and nephews.
John was Leicester City Football Club’s biggest fan and never missed a game.
He loved a good sing-song and his beautiful voice will be remembered by everyone who knew him.
We love you, today tomorrow and always.
Visitation will be held on May 24 from 2:00-4:00 pm and 7:00-9:00 pm at Newcastle Funeral Home, with a service to follow on Friday May 25 at 11:00am at the same location.
In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations be made to the ALS Society of Canada (www.als.ca/donate) who were with him throughout his journey and helped in so many ways.
