It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Richard Camille Robidoux on November 11th, 2023 at the age of 85 years old.
Son of the late Albert and late Genevieve (née Lemieux) Robidoux. Beloved husband of 60 years to Dorothy Robidoux (née Marshall). Loving father of Douglas Robidoux (Carolyn), Laura Camilli (Eugenio), and Michael Robidoux (Sharon). Cherished grandfather of Michael Camilli (Tori), Andrew Camilli (Asja), Nicholas Robidoux (Mackenzie), Meghan Robidoux (Matt), Sarah Robidoux, and Hannah Robidoux. Dear brother of Lina May Gray (Don), Norma Larose (late Gilles), and Patricia Gagnier (Pierre). Predeceased by his sisters Rita Vaillancourt (Frank), Della Trottier (late Don), and Lorraine Bobbie (late Howard), and brothers Roland (late Anita), Maurice (Viviane), and Charles (Thérèse).
Richard was born in St. Charles, Ontario and later moved to Sudbury. He was a long-time employee of Bell Canada and retired as a manager in 1991. After retirement he took on many important community volunteer roles, which included the Sudbury Soup Kitchen, L’Arche, and the Red Cross. Richard loved music and having sing songs, playing his guitar with family and friends. He was a huge fan of sports, especially hockey and his beloved Ottawa Senators. What he loved most was his wife, children, and grandchildren who lit up his face every time he saw them. He will be greatly missed by his brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews and many family and friends.
In lieu of flowers donations to L’arche Sudbury would be appreciated.
