Peacefully, with his daughters by his side, in London at the age of 83, Richard Joseph Tur passed away at University Hospital on Friday, April 16th, 2021. Richard is survived by his daughters Natalie Cullen (Randy), Ela Pawlaszyk (Tony) and Robin Pereira (Jason) and his sisters Myszka and Grazyna. Richard will be missed by his grandchildren Alexis (Brandon), Alana, Rachael, Nicole, Elijah, Ariana and Emilee and his great grandson, Weston. Richard is predeceased by his parents, Kazimiera and Jozef.
A retiree of the Ford Motor Company (30 years), Richard will be remembered for his love of dancing and Cuba, a beautiful day of fishing, a good game of tennis, playing bridge with friends and being active. Richard was an avid reader and welcomed discussions on history, culture and politics. Richard had many fond memories of family cottage vacations around Ontario, his trips to Cuba, and travelling home to Poland. Richard would want you to enjoy the feel of soft sand, the sight and sounds of the ocean and the smell of the ocean air.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. To leave an online condolence, please click the Tribute Wall link. Cremation has taken place. Richard's ashes will be placed to rest where he can move as freely as the current of the Caribbean Sea.
