Richart Marinus Franciscus Maria Bocxe

October 2, 1949 — December 30, 2021

Richart passed away from complications after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. He was the third child in his family and leaves nine siblings in Holland and one in Ireland: Ton (Lida), Lida (Ruud), Ria, Gerard (Willie), Cees (Ria), Arie (Gerda), Corrie (Ton), Joke (Lex), Tineke, Henri (Gabriella).

As an aspiring visual artist, Richart was attracted to the unique natural light of the Calgary area. In 1982 he left the advertising business in Holland and immigrated to Calgary where he pursued his life-long passion of painting, while employing his professional graphic arts experience with several publications locally and nationally. He will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him.
