Richard Hallett Death, Obituary – A short while ago, Richard Hallett, who had been working at this establishment for a good number of years and managing the bar there, passed away. We are forced to break the news to you that he has passed away, and we do so with the utmost regret. Richard’s health had been steadily deteriorating over the past few years, and on Friday, January 6th, he passed away peacefully in the hospital with his two beloved sons by his side.
He was surrounded by family during his final moments. This information is already common knowledge among a sizeable portion of our clientele at this point. Richard started working at The Victoria Hotel in August of 1980, and he quickly became well-known for his contagious laugh, his contagious smile, and his ability to pull off practical jokes. Because he possessed these characteristics, he will be remembered. Richard, a member of the Brend family who worked alongside them and was held in extremely high regard by all of the family members, was held to have an exceptionally high opinion by all of the Brend family members.
We will be leaving behind a condolence book at the hotel at the request of the guests who will be staying there so that they can sign it and write their memories in it. In addition, visitors are urged to simply sign their names in the guest book so that it can be given to his sons at a later time. Richard was a truly one-of-a-kind individual. His family fondly referred to him as “Grandad,” and he was known for his grandfatherly wisdom. Because he was such a good and honest person, and because he had the heart of a child that was so much bigger than his own, you could never have wished for him to change. For my part, I will certainly miss you, as well as the jokes you told and the infectiously happy laugh you had. You will be missed by me. I hope that you, Richard, are able to rest easy in death.
