RICHARDSON, Dermot Hugh Thomas

The man, the myth, the legend

Passed away suddenly at home, in Acton on Friday, January 24, 2020 in his 78th year. Dear husband for 56 years of Marie (nee Bedford). Loving father of Stephen Richardson (Connie) and Brenda Richardson. Proud grandfather of Lucas, Genevieve, Dominique, Philip and Rebecca. Dermot will be fondly remembered by many close friends and family here and in Ireland. He was a retired Toronto police officer, and Legion member.

He touched the hearts of us all
Even the big and the small
He was such a good friend, right till the end
In heaven he is having a ball.

The family will receive friends at MacKinnon Family Funeral Home, 55 Mill St. E., Acton on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A funeral mass will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at
