Richard Erick Oakman

1960 – 2013

It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Oakman announces his passing on Monday, December 9, 2013. Richard was born in New Westminster at the Royal Columbia Hospital, on June 5, 1960.

He was predeceased by his brother James Steven Oakman.

Richard is survived by his two sons Cory and Ryan Oakman, ex wife Cheryl Oakman, parents Allan and Mary Oakman, brother Robert A. Oakman, sister Kim B. McCaig (Vaughn McCaig), brother Ronald Oakman, nieces and nephews, Kara McCaig (Richard Orr), Lisa McCaig (Philip Staub), Erika McCaig, Nicholas Oakman (Ashley Hand) and great niece Natasha Oakman.

Richard enjoyed life when he was young. He relished the computer age, and would spend many hours with this technology. As children, we would attend the First Lutheran Church on Wales St. in Vancouver. Richard loved attending hockey games and playing hockey growing up.

Richard’s family would like to thank all the relatives and friends who were always there for him. Special thanks to the staff at the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital and North Thompson Funeral Services for your care and attention to our brother in his time of need.
