Sadly, Richard William Otto a proud 12-year veteran of the RCAF has left us on Monday, November 20, 2017 with his family at his side. Born in Toronto, ON he was the son of the late Hector and Laila (Puro) Otto. Beloved husband of the late Marie Roy (nee MacDonald). Cherished brother of Tom (predeceased) (Isabel), Nancy Otto-Maki (Arne) and Pat Gosselin (Ron). He will be dearly missed by his niece and nephews and their wives and children. Hugs and kisses to his special angel Julie Dufresne and her family. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to all blood donors. We would also like to acknowledge and offer our gratitude and hugs to “our Nursing Family” at the Medical Day Clinic at Health Sciences North for their care and compassion shown to Rick during his visits. In keeping with Richard’s request there will be no visitation. A Memorial Service will be celebrated at a later date. Interment of his cremains will take place beside his wife Marie at the Maplecrest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please be a blood donor.
