Obituary of Richard Barry Dodson


Richard left us with a single tear rolling down his cheek as if to let us know how much he loved us!

Devastated to let him go are: The Love of his Life - Johannah (Eansor), his best buddy and son - Noah (Jessica, grandson Jensen); Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and his darling daughter Dillon (Chris DelCastilho); Toronto.

Richard's life was all about Design, Family, Friends, and of course puppies!

Early in his career he created an original Lifestyle Store. Great Things! in Windsor. ON decades before this retail concept was established. He also designed and manufactured the famous "Minos Chair" that was marketed throughout Canada and the U.S.

Richard had a natural talent for meeting people and collecting friends by finding common elements to banter about. It was easy for him and he got along with most people he met.

His love for animals was paramount and he always had a few treats in his pocket for furry friends.

Richard had a deep Spiritual belief in the Lord as his Personal Saviour and he wasn't afraid to let you know.

Finally if you knew Richard you knew all about his Family. He was obsessed with talking about us to anyone who would listen.

Our lives will be less colourful without him. Richard was someone very special in so many different ways to so many different people!

A Celebration of His Life will be set at a later date. We ask that you take a moment to share your best stories of Rich with his family at
