Dal Richards’ Funeral Set for Saturday Jan. 9th


Funeral services have been announced for legendary band leader/broadcaster Dal Richards who passed away New Year’s Eve at age 97.  It is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, January 9 at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver.  A reception limited to family and friends, including those in the radio business past and present, will follow.  His wife Muriel told Gord Lansdell of NWBroadcasters.com, “Dal had a great life and a fairly quick passing.  On Christmas Eve he was at Christ Church for the 1 p.m. Christmas Eve service, where he did his traditional stint as a ‘celebrity reader’ of a bible verse….after which we stopped in at the Hotel Vancouver for lunch before heading home.  He enjoyed Christmas dinner with family, and then fairly suddenly and comfortably faded away.  He had a lovely 97++ years of life and an easy death, and will be loved and remembered by many….what more could any of us ask for?”
