Royal Montreal Golf Club

April 6, 2010

Good morning all,

Richard’s cousin Diane has kindly sent along some pictures: the flag at Royal Montreal is at half mast and the notice of his passing is posted in the club house.  Richard maintained his membership at Royal ever since he graduated from McGill in 1977 and moved away from Montreal.  The highlight of the year for him was returning to play in the Centennial Match each July and reconnecting with friends and family.

Meg and I were just remarking last night that it feels as though Richard’s away for business and will return soon….

    What a fitting tribute to Rich to see the flag at half mast at the Royal Montreal. Some of you may not know that a tree was also planted on the course in his honour last November.

    It was very moving to be in Indy this week and hear stories about Rich and the ways in which he touched so many lives. He has been part of the Coadys for over thirty years and we were blessed to have him join our family, not to mention the addition of Chris, Meg and Mike. We are all so grateful for having known and loved Rich.

    Dear Lafave Family,

    The Evans family and so many other friends are here if you need anything.
    Today I took the purple lights down, representing pancreatic cancer. The tree they were in were a flowering crab apple which was blooming beautiful purple flowers on a bright sunny day.

    Jon, Nolan, Dave and Doug
