Obituary of RICHARD KARP


Peacefully on March 17, 2017 with his family by his side, Richard lost his courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Remembered and forever missed by his loving wife Darlene, 96 year old mother Teenie; father Willian (deceased 2002); daughter Debbie (Jim); son Doug (Sonya); stepsons Jeff (Laura) and Mark; grandchildren Ashley, Brenden and Audrey and pets Parker and Bensen.

Richard was a successful business owner of Waywest Detailing Services. He was a long time member of the Elmwood Hardknocks Curling Team and Elmhurst Golf and Country Club.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Ogaranko and staff from the Oncology Dept., Victoria Hospital; also to Ann, a very special palliative care nurse.
