Richard Chisholm

At the age of 81 years, on November 9, 2021, Richard passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

Beloved husband of 55 years of Rita (George) Chisholm, and father of Martin (Michele Sealy) Chisholm and Susan (Mark) Robinson. “Papa Richard” to his cherished grandchildren Neil and Ian Chisholm, and Harmony and Chad Robinson. “Dick” to his siblings Joseph(Carol), Margaret (Ed), Kathleen (Ed), Elizabeth, Michael, and Martha. Richard is pre-deceased by his parents, Joseph Martin and Martha Chisholm (nee Hayes), siblings Joe, Margaret and Kay, and in-laws Anne Louise (Ronnie, Hilyerd), Rosie (Larry), and Donnie. His gentle teasing and welcoming home will be remembered by his nieces and nephews Debbie,Kevin, Gary, Jennifer, Rick, Ed, Lisa Rae, Gordon, Anne, Elaine, Mary, Catherine, Angie, and Aaron, as well as numerous great nieces, nephews, friends, and neighbours.

Richard was born in Montreal and grew up in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve area. At age 17, he began working at Ogilvie-Renault in the mailroom, where he was dubbed “Red” due to his hair colour. He worked his way into the accounting department from which he retired in 2000. It was while working here that a co-worker introduced him to her sister (Rita George of Verdun) at a company bowling event. They married in 1966. Richard and Rita lived in Lasalle for many years, raising their children there, and making friends in the St. John Brebeuf parish and beyond. Richard enjoyed bowling and puttering at the Lake Mac Gillivray cottage, singing with the Retreads, and Rita’s wonderful baking and TLC.

The family wishes to offer their deepest thanks to Dr. Joan Zidulka, Dr. Laura Habib, Benny Romano, and the rest of the Cancer Care Day Clinic of St. Mary’s Hospital for the excellent care provided to Richard over the years. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation, Montreal (Qc) in Richard’s name.

The family will receive relatives and friends at :

1275 Dollard, Lasalle
