Obituary of Richard Mariner Clifton Trivett
Trivett, Richard Mariner Clifton -
Richard "Rich" died suddenly on January 4th, 2023, in Saint John, NB at the age of 56. He was the second youngest of six children of Rev. Canon Donald Trivett and Gloria (Teed) Trivett.
Born in Halifax on January 27, 1966, he graduated with honors from Queen Elizabeth High School in Halifax and went on to the University of Waterloo where he graduated with Honours in Mathematics and Computer Science.
Richard had a great sense of humour and was always ready with a bad pun. He had a keen eye for photography. He loved his cats, and live music, and he had a great singing voice. He loved to explore the world around him to create meaningful experiences. In his youth, he twice biked long distance from Halifax to Prince Edward Island and throughout the Annapolis Valley. He enjoyed the outdoors where he hunted, fished, sailed, camped, and canoed. One of his favourite places was Clifton Royal where he spent all his childhood summers. He always enjoyed family gatherings and taking part the family traditions he grew up with. Friends remember him fondly for his kindness to others.
He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his siblings, Jean Stratford, River John, NS; Anne Harris (Gary), New Minas, NS; John Trivett (Carolyn) Quispamsis, NB; Katy Gustafson (Cliff), Winnipeg, MB; Dan Trivett (Michel), Toronto, Ontario. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Richard was predeceased by his mother Gloria Jean (Teed) Trivett, father Rev. Canon Donald F.L. Trivett, and brother-in-law Ron Stratford.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Brenan's Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John, NB (634-7424). There will be no visitation. The interment will be in Clifton Royal, NB, at a later date.
Donations in memory may be made to Bobby’s Hospice, 385 Dufferin Row, Saint John, NB E2M 2J9, or the food bank of your choice.
