Obituary of Richard Harold McCaffery

McCaffery Richard Harold (Dick) passed away peacefully at Niagara Falls General Hospital on Saturday December 12, 2020, in his 86th year. Predeceased by his first wife Louella, he was the loving husband and best friend to Dorothée née LaPointe. Dick was father to Steven (Wendy), Peter (Wieslawa), John (Mary). Devoted brother of Mary Haymes, Bill McCaffery, Sharon Smeed, predeceased by his sister Janet Gifford. Grandfather to Robert, Karol (Linda), Anna (Dan), Andrea, John, Melissa, Phillip, Julliet, Elizabeth, Victoria. He was uncle to Megan (Jeff), Todd, Philip, Judy, Susan, Kent. Great Uncle to Michaela, Owen and Cameron. Dick was a devoted family man and enjoyed spending time with everyone, including extended family and friends. He will be greatly missed! Dick was a gentle man who through his actions was kind, humble and forgiving. He had an excellent work ethic, never sitting still and his true passion was his love for wood working (built his own home/cabinetry/furniture), gardening and avid reader (Clive Cussler). Dick had a love for nature, especially his backyard birds/ pet dog (Buffy) / pet cat (Tildy) / neighbor’s goats / chickens/ Yukon the dog. He had a great sense of humor and loved passing time in conversation with a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or his rum and cokes. In his memory, Dick would have asked us to be kind to each other and remember to take care of those less fortunate in our community. He passionately supported Port Cares, in Port Colborne, Ont.
