It is with great regret that I announce the death of my brother Richard Scopp, peacefully at his home, on Sunday, October 23, 2011, after a battle with cancer.
Richard was a resident of Cortes Island for the past three years, time that he referred to as the happiest of his life.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who made him feel so welcome, and to all of his friends for the care and respect they showed him in his final days.
In particular, I'd like to thank Dr. Phil Foster and the staff at the medical clinic, Bernice, Julia, Gary and Elinore, and Karen, for the kindness they extended not only to Richard, but to me as well.
As per his wishes there will be no memorial service, but donations in his memory may be made to The Cortes Community Health Association.
