In Memoriam: Richard Johns

Richard Johns (June 21, 1934-May 26, 2020)

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Richard Johns, on Tuesday May 26, 2020 after an extended hospital stay.

Richard was an entrepreneur – his Richmond, B.C., auto parts business, Coast Import Auto Supplies, has been in operation for more than 50 years and is still a leader in import used auto parts.

He derived a lot of pleasure going into work every day, which was certainly a feat at 85, and he did so right up to his hospitalization.

He enjoyed work, cycling, spending time soaking up the sun at his beloved Spanish Banks, reading, collecting, and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by his twin brother Donald (Gail) Johns- Richmond, B.C.; niece Glenna (Patrick) Bauer- Ketchikan, Alaska and friend and longtime business associate, Ed (Linda) Tretwold-Coquitlam, B.C.

Please consider a donation to a charity of your choice in his memory.

A special event to honour such a special man will be held at a later date, commensurate with Covid 19 social distancing requirements.

He will be missed.
