In memory of Richard Stackhouse
Richard was a doctor in Devon who dedicated his life to the wellbeing of others. He had a particular interest in breast cancer, working in The Breast Care Unit at Torbay Hospital right up to his untimely and sudden death in March 2015. He also set up Family History Clinics.
As a person he was warm, caring and considerate – a real gentleman, but beneath this charm was an unstoppable determination. He was a great supporter of charities and partook of many endeavours to raise funds – no scheme was too far-fetched for him to enthuse about. A great adventurer, he also spent periods in Nepal lecturing medical students and becoming involved in the work of a hospital in Kathmandu, as well as sponsoring a child in Indonesia.
He has been a superb inspiration to all of his friends, colleagues and family, and memories of him will endure. Knight in shining armour, Richard your life has enriched us all. Snatched away so suddenly, we miss you dreadfully but will always be grateful for the love, hope, boundless enthusiasm, and above all fun that you brought to our lives.
Because of his work in Breast Cancer we feel that a Breakthrough Tribute Fund in his memory is altogether appropriate. Giving a small donation to this page will help other doctors to give their patients and families better lives. All donations greatly appreciated.
