In loving memory ~
Richard George Fuhr passed away on September 17, 2023, at the age of age of 88 years. Richard was well-known and well loved in his adopted hometown of Penticton. He was a successful businessman and philanthropist known locally for his tenure at Skaha Ford.
Richard laid the grassroots foundation of the Peach City Beach Cruise with the Penticton Show 'n Shine, held at Skaha Ford and the lake-to-lake cruise. Elvis tribute artists at the Show 'n Shine and Peach City Beach Cruise would eventually give rise to the Penticton Elvis Festival.
There will be a celebration of Richard's life at Penticton Golf & Country Club on Monday, November 13, 2023, at 6:00 P.M. It will be an informal evening of fellowship and joyous memories.
