Richard John Enns

January 11, 1949 - May 31, 2020 

On the evening of May 31st, our Richard left us ...in the last moments there was peace and no pain. 

Richard was born in Winkler to Jacob and Agatha; the third of four children. He grew up fostering his love of farming, auctioneering, and crashing cars. The neighboring farm girls fought for his attention and in 1967 Bernice Kunzelman kept his focus. They were married in 1970 and began building their family of four children: Michael, Marci, Matthew and Morgan. Alongside his life-long addiction to farming, Richard was always very proud of his days working at Bethel Hospital and the Morden Research Station (where he worked over 35 years). All places from which he maintained lifelong friendships. He knew everything there was to know about cattle, apples and roses (all you had to do was ask). In his retirement, Richard was most fond of his time fishing, getting together with friends, and spending as much time with his grandchildren as possible. Unfortunately, time ran out. We all would have liked more time with each other. However, he always made sure to love everybody with every cell of his body until the end. The last weeks were rough but you left us all feeling your love and we are glad you left in peace. 

Richard was predeceased by his father, Jake, sister, Leona, and brother, Almer, father-in-law and mother-in-law, Philip and Olive Kunzelman. He is survived by his mother, Agatha (nee Fehr), brother, Irvin and family, in-laws, Barry Kunzelman (Nowell), Jim Penner and Bev Enns (nee Blumb) and families. Richard leaves behind wife, Bernice (nee Kunzelman), children, Michael (Maria Episcopo), Marci (Brian Miller), Matthew (Leanne Girard), and Morgan (Brent Lambert). The grandchildren he adored were Alli and Katie Miller, Dylan and Brooklyn Lambert, and Alisha and Darien Duclos. 

Cremation has taken place and due to the COVID-19 pandemic a service will be held at a later date. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Richard’s memory to the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation designated to Palliative Care.
