Dr Richard Hereward Chapman
9 August 1935 - 14 May 2017

Veterinarian and raconteur,
died in his sleep.

Richard enriched the lives of many people - through his friendship and through the dedication, generosity and compassion he showed in caring for their animals. He had a gift for love and laughter and friendship and our world will be duller without him. Richard will be greatly missed by everyone who loved him - his family, his many friends and clients and the animals whose suffering he eased.

In accordance with Richard's wishes,
he was privately cremated.

A celebration of Richard's life will be
held in a few week's time.

In lieu of flowers, donations to
Guide Dogs Australia would be appreciated.
