Obituary for Brian Gavin Richardson

Brian Gavin Richardson of Mill Cove, New Brunswick passed away peacefully on February 6th, 2023. Born on May 8,1965 in Vaughan Ontario to Gavin Robert Richardson and Ethel Merle Richardson (nee Stewart).

Brian graduated from FHS in 1984 and worked at the Fredericton Direct Charge Co-op, Coveys, Office Interiors and Maple Leaf Foods. In his youth he loved playing hockey and going on camping and fishing trips with his family which he continued to enjoy with his children.

Brian was predeceased by his mother in 2008, his father in 2022 and nephew Alex Pert in 2021. Survived by one brother Doug (Jennifer), and three sisters Faye Pert (Reid), Carol (Darrin Knox), and Heather Pugh (John), his 3 children; Matt (Caitlin Jones), Mike (Ashtyn Colford) and Samantha Richardson (Ethan Bragdon), 3 grandchildren; Gavin, Grayson and Lucille; nieces Holly Miller (Tommy), Allison (Jacob Pevie) and Nathalie Pugh (Nate Beckwith), nephews Corey (Samantha Shea) and Brandon Knox, and grandniece Eleanor Miller and grandnephew River Knox.

After his diagnosis of early dementia at 45 years old in 2010, he lived with his Grand Lake Comfort (formerly Keetch’s Special Care Home) friends and family in Mill Cove at Grand Lake. The staff and residents at the care home were his extended family, and we are so thankful for their continued love and support throughout this journey. We have very fond memories of “Sunday visits with Brian” at his father’s home on Grand Lake. Brian enjoyed family time and going out on drives with his father before his passing.

Thank you for the compassion and care provided by all the hard-working staff at the DECH, they have made the final days peaceful. Special thank you to Tara and Debbie for your love and support. In keeping with the family’s wishes, no visitation, funeral, or interment is to be held. Memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of NB.

Arrangements are in the compassionate care of Chipman Funeral Home Ltd. & Crematorium (506-339-6612). Memories and condolences may be shared through
