Richard, Joseph Bernard, age 65, of Linwood and formerly of Cape George passed away on September 3, 2023, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Antigonish and raised in Knoydart, he was a son of the late Reginald and Catherine (Gillis) Richard.

Joe simply loved the water, both as a lobster fisherman and fishing for fun.  He enjoyed hunting, working in the woods, tinkering with old cars, and when he was in Cape George, you could always find him with his friend, Ron.  Joe was the sort of guy who would always offer you a hand whenever needed, and his grandkids were his pride and joy.

He is survived by his wife, Susan (Gosbee); children, Shawna (Jeremy) Crowley, Port Hawkesbury; Ruby Richard (Jay Fougere), Mulgrave; Reggie (Nicol) Richard, Linwood; six grandchildren, Faith & Kaden, Dominic & Rubin, and Andrélle & Noah; siblings, Mary (Bernie), Margie, Peter, Robert, Florence (Robert), Curtis, Lawrence, John, and Roy.

Predeceased by his granddaughter, Gabrielle; sisters, Helen and Joany, and his parents-in-law, Ruby and Victor Gosbee.

Cremation has taken place.  Visitation will be held Thursday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish.  Funeral Mass will be held Friday in St. Mary’s Church, Lismore, at 11:00am, with Fr. Colin MacKinnon presiding.

In Memoriam, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society appreciated.
