EYBEL, RICHARD – after a short battle with cancer passed away on July 24, 2017 at Shaver Hospital in his 88th year. Loving father of Sharon Ralph (Bob), Patricia Muench (Shayne) and Rick Eybel. Poppa to Rob (Amanda), Alysia (Mark), Victoria, Corry and Courtney. Great poppa to Gemini, Alexis, Carter, Hayden, Hailey, Ethan, Liam and Quinn. Richard is survived by his sister Shirley McInnis, brother William Eybel and brother in law Donald Fitzsimmons. Predeceased by his wife Kathleen, brother Glenn and sister Ruth. Dick as he had been known to friends and family was born and raised on a farm in Effingham. He worked at G.M. as a tool setter and retired with our mom to Allenford where he farmed a couple acres of his eighty acre farm. You could always find him in the field or getting ready to go to the Keady Market. His passion was his farming and he was good at it. Resting at the LAMPMAN FUNERAL HOME, 724 Canboro Road, Fenwick for Funeral Service in the LAMPMAN CHAPEL on Thursday July 27th at 11:00 A.M. Interment at North Pelham Cemetery to follow. Visitation will be Wednesday July 26th from 6-8 P.M. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. The family would like to Thank Shaver Hospital for their care and compassion, but most of all we Thank Victoria Ralph (Nurse Tody), for her undivided love and care through his rough journey. Poppa loved you there. “You were good company”

Our deepest sympathies on the passing of Dick. He was a great neighbour and we have fond memories of him and Kathleen.
Hope to see you Sharon and Bob in the near future.

Hello to the Eybel family from your mom’s first cousin, once removed. For a couple of weeks now your father has been on my heart and as he came to mind I prayed for him. I used to have pleasant conversations with him at the farm or at Keady Market. At one time I would buy my canning tomatoes from him, before I started to grow my own.
This is our prayer for you all:
Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’
