Richard was a security guard and was on duty when an impaired driver crashed into his vehicle at Salem Rd. and Hwy 401 in the early morning hours of November 19, 2018. Richard died upon impact.

Just hours before the devastating crash that took his life, Richard helped Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) stop another suspected impaired driver. DRPS formally recognized Richard for his contribution to community safety, calling him a hero and presenting a commemorative plaque to his family.

MADD Canada’s Memorial Road Signs are a powerful symbol of remembrance and a reminder to the public about the dangers of driving impaired. MADD Canada thanks Richard’s family for their courage, and the Town of Ajax for its leadership in honouring victims of impaired driving.
