Richard Henry Ottewell Conkin

Richard Henry  Ottewell Conkin

of White Rock BC, left us peacefully on February 3, 2011 after a short battle with Leukemia. Born in Nelson, BC on April 13, 1954 he is survived by his loving children Chantel (Rick) & Cassidy, brothers David (Charlene), Allan (Kathie), sister Mary-Lou & numerous nieces & nephews. Predeceased by his parents William & Patricia Conkin. Richie was the best Dad in the world. He was a hardworking, devoted man who preferred to give rather than receive. He will be forever remembered & cherished for his HUGE heart.

Special thanks to the ICU & BMT staff at VGH for making our Dad’s last few weeks as comfortable as possible & to all our family & friends for their support during this difficult time.
