Daniel Richard
Daniel Richard, 50, of Bouctouche, passed away suddenly on Monday August 23, 2021. Born in Moncton and raised in Pointe-Sapin, he was the son of Claudette (Roy) Richard and the late Maurice Richard.
Daniel was a loving and dedicated partner, father, son, and friend as well as a devoted Fishery Officer. He had been involved in the fishing community most of his life, and for the past 15 years, had been dedicating much of his time to the Department of Fisheries and Ocean as a Fishery Officer. Throughout his career, Daniel worked closely and had great working relationships with members of the fishing communities everywhere he worked.
When Daniel was not devoting his time in the community, he could be found cheering on his daughters Pascale and Eva at many activities. He also loved spending time with his partner Eléna and his many friends.
Daniel was known by many and loved by all. He will be missed dearly by his common-law wife, Eléna Rousselle; his daughter, Pascale Richard; his step-daughter, Eva Aucoin both at home; his mother, Claudette Richard; his parents-in-law, Gloria (Neri); his sisters-in-law, Erica (Gary), Elise (Shawn); his brother-in-law, Emmanuel (Nathalie); his Godchildren, Reno Roy and Jolin Roy; as well as three nephews, two nieces, several uncles, aunts, cousins and many friends.
