Richard (Dick) James Horspool

Richard (Dick) James Horspool passed away peacefully on July 12, 2011 at the age of 81. Dick was born at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver on August 28, 1929. He grew up in West Vancouver. In his early years he developed a lifelong love of boating through his involvement with the West Vancouver Yacht Club.

Dick and his wife Fran moved to Powell River in 1954 where they made a wonderful life and met many lifelong friends. Dick enjoyed his years as a woodworking teacher and head of the vocational department at Max Cameron Senior Secondary School. He retired after 33 years in the educational system. He was also an active member of the community who enjoyed giving his time to organizations such as Powell River Lions Club and Sea Cadets.

Dick will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Fran, married for 57 years, his children and their families.

Memorial donations in memory of Dick can be made to Powell River Hospital Foundation. No service by request.

The family would like to thank Dr. Bruce Hobson and all the staff of Evergreen Extended Care Unit and Powell River General Hospital for their loving, wonderful care.
