November 10, 1970 – November 29, 2016
Peacefully left this world on November 29th 2016 surrounded by love. Loving husband to Barb Oakes (nee Davis) for 23 years, best friends for 31 years, in love forever. Proud father to Jocelyn, Sadie and Connor. Loving son born to Herb Oakes and Colleen Greene on November 10th,1970 and son-in-law of Frank and Janet Davis. Sadly missed by his step-mother Sandy Oakes, his sister Theresa Oakes, step-brother Jay Sykes (Melissa) and brother-in-law Phil Davis (Tammy). Rich was also loved by his nieces and nephews, many Aunts, Uncles and cousins. In lieu of gifts and flowers a Donation to the Stedman Hospice would be greatly appreciated. There are no words to express our gratitude for the support and care Rich and our family received from the hospice staff. A celebration of life will be held on December 9th, 2016 at Copetown Hall from 5pm-9pm. There will be an opportunity for anyone who wishes to share their thoughts or memories of Rich during the celebration.
