With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Richard Kieda on October 15, 2021 at the age of 85, after a hard-fought, two-year battle with cancer.
Richard was the devoted husband of Elena who predeceased Richard by 17 days after 64 years of marriage. He will always be fondly remembered by his loving children, Regina (Martin) and Claudio (Rina). Richard had always treasured his two granddaughters, Jennifer and Stephanie, and step-grandchildren, Jessica and Justin.
Richard grew up in war-torn Poland. Shortly after the war he married Elena and moved to Argentina where Regina and Claudio were born. Fifteen years later Richard once again uprooted his family and moved to Canada to make a better life becoming Canadian citizens. Having lived on three continents and learning multiple languages Richard was truly a man of the world.
Richard was a sports fanatic and usually had more than one TV going at a time so not to miss any of the action. In fact, he died peacefully in his favourite spot in front of the TV.
Richard will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
Rest in Peace Richard. And give Elena a big hug from all of us.
