I knew Richard Matte for a short time when he worked in Surrey and Delta BC as a Longshoreman. He was a member of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 502. I remember him riding to work on a scooter. He had wild unkempt hair and glasses. He spoke with a french accent. I remember one day he was in our dispatch hall and got upset when the dispatcher gave him the same job he had taken the day before.

He called me many times before he retired as I am the pension trustee. I wondered when we was going to retire.

He would talk about buying a house and retiring to the East Coast. These are the memories I have of Richard Matte.

It is too bad he didn't get many years to enjoy his pension. Condolences to all who knew him.
