Jan. 9, 1953-June 12, 2020
Richard Harder, aged 67 years, of Winnipeg, MB, passed away suddenly on Friday, June 12, 2020, at his residence.
He is survived by his mother Susie, of Edmonton, AB, five sisters, Uncle Henry and Gertie Unger and his special friend Carol Hans.
He was predeceased by his wife Grace in 2000, his father Diedrich, grandparents Diedrich and Aganetha Harder, and two sisters.
Richard was born Jan. 9, 1953 in Winnipeg, MB, and was in the care of his grandparents for most of his growing up years. They faithfully took him to church and Sunday school.
At the age of 20, he got a job at C.N. Rail and was employed there for 35 years until his retirement in 2008.
To stay active he mowed the lawns in summer and shovelled snow in winter around the neighbourhood. Whenever someone needed a hand he was always willing to help.
Richard, together with Carol, enjoyed going to car shows, festivals, fall suppers and drives to Steinbach.
The funeral service was held on Saturday, June 20 at 2 p.m. at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, Steinbach, MB, with a devotional at 2:30 p.m. Interment followed at Blumengard Cemetery.
Special thanks to Carol, EMS, Winnipeg Police, neighbours, and to Birchwood Funeral Chapel for all of their help.
Our hope and comfort is in the Lord.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles..."~2 Corinthians 1:3-4
