Hubert Richard, at 58 years old, passed away suddenly at his residence in Sandy Lake, Manitoba on Friday, September 14th, 2018. Hubert was born on April 21st, 1960 and is the beloved father of Anastasia Muir (John), Courtney Roy and the late Ryan Roy, Grandfather of Ryder and Kinzley, Son of Grace Roy and the late Richard Roy, Brother of Mike Roy, Tim Roy (Lana), Judy Rookes (Allan), Tom Roy (Caroline) and Uncle to Jade Keller (Devin), Max Roy, Dana Rookes (Ellie), Amanda Rookes, Richard Rookes (Tina), Samantha Seagris (Victor), Kendall Roy and Matthew Roy as well as his great nieces and nephews.
Hubert grew up full of life and mischevious. He took pride in working hard with his siblings with his father doing milk deliveries, earning money by doing mail routes and eventually took pride in owning his own painting company “Roy Painting and Decorating” Hubert’s Family and children were his biggest joy in life and they all enjoyed time together camping, fishing, boating, skidooing, laughing and for a period of time watching and cheering his son on during Motocross at the Racetracks all over Manitoba before his son passed away after a battle with cancer.
Hubert enjoyed visiting with family and friends while he wasn’t busy working. He will forever be remembered for his grin and laugh that could fill a room, joy for life and his continued mischevious that continued throughout his life.
Donations can be made to Canadian Cancer Society.
Funeral service for family and friends was held
at St. Paul’s United Church, Souris, Manitoba on Friday, September 21, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. A Private interment in the Carroll Cemetery.

Dear Grace and family
I was very saddened to hear of Huey’s passing. He was truly one of a kind. Always so thoughtful and caring of everyone else even when life wasn’t maybe so kind to him. I ran into him a year or two ago and we talked for about an hour- reminiscing and laughing. He will be missed by many. XO
My thoughts and prayers go out to Sandy and family. Hubert will be deeply missed by all that knew him.. RIP Hubert ❤️
Our condolences. Was a wonderful guy.

RIP Hubert (Huey) I remember growing up in the old downtown Brandon neighborhood with you and your brothers and sister. We had so many great times and memories. Playing huge games with all the local kids in the Brandon Auto parking lot. Getting into trouble the odd time. You and your siblings were a big part of childhood memories. Later in life, as adults we would always stop and talk when we ran into each other, just to catch up on life. I will miss you until I see you on the other side.
My deepest sympathy to you Sandy and all your family. So very sorry for your loss.
It is with a heavy heart that we send our deepest condolences to the Roy Family….

Huey was always a good guy and I will always remember referring painting jobs to him as I knew he was one of the most dependable contractors one could count on. He was always accommodating, despite his very busy schedule. He was one of the best. My deepest condolences to the Roy Family at this sad time. Rest in peace, Huey.
