Queen's remembers Richard Sterling

The Queen's community is remembering Richard Sterling a plumber with Physical Plant Services (PPS) for the past 10 years. Sterling died suddenly on Nov. 10.

During his time at Queen's Sterling mentored many colleagues through his actions and applied passion to his endeavours in the workplace each day. His colleagues will miss the generosity of his time and will remember his sage advice. Although he never boasted, Sterling was very proud of his sons and his contributions to the Queen’s community including his service on the PPS Joint Health and Safety Committee and his work with CUPE Local 229.

A funeral will take place at noon on Thursday, Nov. 14.

An obituary is available online.
