Obituary of Richard Leonard Routledge
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Richard Routledge, husband to Barbara (Short) Routledge, announces his passing which occurred on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at Bobby’s Hospice. Born on May 12, 1930 in New Jerusalem, NB, Dick was the son of the late Melville and Annie (Wildgoose) Routledge.
