March 31, 1928 - August 22, 2019
Richard Everett Armstrong, 91, passed away Thursday, August 22, 2019. He had been lovingly taken care of by his children and friends after losing his wife, Gladys earlier this year. Richard was born at Emanuel Hospital in Portland Oregon and grew up in Canby Oregon with his grandmother Nelson and his uncle George. He was a very soft spoken man but carried a big stick when needed. He loved to make dad jokes, tinker in his garage and make people happy. Though going through life with physical limitations due to polio, there was nothing that he would not tackle and succeed in. He was the ultimate DIY dad. Richard and Gladys were longtime members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many positions within the church. Richard shared a love of Genealogy and Family History and singing. In retirement along with his wife, Gladys, they performed a Family History Mission in Salt Lake City, Utah. Richard is survived by his four children; Evan (Dennis), Eric, Paul, and Elizabeth (Buffie), thirteen Grandchildren, and twenty-two Great Grandchildren and brother Harold Carlson.
