Richard Davies


Richard Davies
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Richard James Davies of Flat River, PEI in his 75th year at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Sunday, December 16, 2018. Richard was born in Birmingham, England to the late Sidney and Elizabeth Davies.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 51 years, Judith (Judy) Davies; son Bradley (Lisa), Hong Kong and daughter Elisa, Toronto, ON and grandchildren Emma and Iain Davies. Richard is survived in England by his sister Diana (David) Cliff, nephew Spencer (Lisa) Cliff, and nieces Susan (Edwin) Bray and Elizabeth (Ian) Grundy. He is lovingly remembered by his mother-in-law Georgena (late Neale) Stuart, sister in law Margaret Ruth (Roy) Thorburn, all of St. Catherines, ON.

Richard immigrated to Canada in 1965 and moved with his young family to Prince Edward Island in 1976. His professional career involved being the Director of Environmental Health for many years. He established his own company, Eastern Food Safety Consulting and taught courses in food safety for the food service industry, as well as the Culinary Institute of Canada. He was a proud chairman of the PEI Environmental Advisory Committee for several years and was involved in the development of a water act for the province. Richard’s great passions were sheep farming and forestry management on his farm in Flat River.

Richard will be greatly missed by his friends and colleagues across the Island and beyond. His remains have been cremated. According to Richard’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral at this time. However, his family will announce a celebration of Richard’s life in the summer of 2019.

Donations in Richard’s memory may be made to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The family would like to thank Dr. Wotherspoon and nurses in Unit 1, as well as the ICU team at the QEH for all their efforts. They greatly appreciated the kindness and care of Chaplain Mark Buell. Remembrances of Richard can be shared through the Belvedere Funeral Home.
