Richard Neufield

May 26, 1944 - December 26, 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Richard Neufield at the age of 79. He was loved by all that met him, and never turned down the opportunity to help others. He grew up in Oliver BC where he was an orchardist until 27, he then worked in the logging and mining industries for the remainder of his working career before retiring at 58 due to issues with his back. He was a man of faith for over 40 years, last serving at Horizon Church Princeton. When he was more mobile he loved meeting friends for coffee at Cool Beanz, and was always found helping others get firewood, move, telling stories, and giving people food and money as often as he could spare it. He was a homebody that loved a good coffee and spending time with his grandkids. Richard was able to spend a beautiful 54 years married to the love of his life. He loved his family with all his heart, and was so proud of each and every one of them.

He will forever be remembered for his contagious laugh, wide grin, and soft heart. He was predeceased by his parents, Neil and Nellie, two of his brothers, Mark and Keith, and his youngest daughter, Debbie.

He is survived by his wife, Pauline, his eldest son, Jason (Carrie) Neufield, his middle daughter Lynette (Curtis) Boyd, his son-in-law, Mike (Tanya) White, and grandchildren Alexia (Sean) and Kirsten Boyd, Braydon (Dakota) and Bailey (Nick) White.

His memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm, Saturday February 3rd, 2024 at Riverside Community Centre in Princeton BC. All are welcome to attend, and the family thanks everyone for their continued support.

Dick how we’re going to miss you.You were the best brother in law anyone could’ve had.Your kindness was out of this world you would drop what ever you were doing to help others who needed help,even if someone needed a ride to Penticton you would do that and not think anything about it. How you would make us laugh boy we had some good times.You would tease Pauline like crazy and she would always say I’m going to hurt you and we would laugh so hard. And when we would call you.You would answer with a funny saying to see who would make the other laugh first.The house is going to be so quiet with out you there.Your house is always full of love and laughter and stories that I will miss the most.Your family is strong and will get through this and their faith is strong knowing you are with your love ones. Parents,brothers inlaw, brother in law and specially your youngest daughter Debbie who was waiting for you with open arms. We will always miss you dick so RIP love always your favourite sister in laws Tammy and Donna💔💔♥️♥️
