Richard Lee Pierre Antoine
We have come together to celebrate the life of Richard Pierre Antoine, He was also known as sha – sha or sha he got his nickname from French pronunciation of Richard.
Richard was born in Cambridge Mass. On Oct 8, 1975 child of Roger St.Fort and Marie Coliman. Richard was the youngest of the three children, leaving behind his sister Geneva and brother Claude. Richard’s love for traveling was one of the trademarks of his life. After he married, and became a father and grandfather, he relocated from Mass, and New Hampshire became his new home. Richard was blessed to have a large family leaving behind his wife Sonya his daughters Aaliyah, Ariana, his two sons, Ernie, Terrell, and his grandchildren Lily, Athena, Aubrey, Iysabella, Ayiva. Richard also leaves behind several aunts and uncles; Marc Colimon, Monique Malary, Jose Malary, Alvire Paul, Henry Paul, Dr.Raymond Coliman, Mari Colimon, Dr.O’nell Colimon, Loli Colimon, and Marie Bleus. Richard leaves behind several nieces and nephews; Georgia Bonte, Cliff Pierre-Antoine, Jackie Pierre-Antoine, Farrah Guillou, Chris Guillou, Ares Guillou, Rachel Pierre-Antoine, Cassandra Bazile, Marlon Pierre-Antoine, Marjorie Bazile, Sean Pierre-Antoine, and Rhyvon Bonte. Richard will be missed by countless cousins; Alvire Jean-Francois, Rams Colimon, Reginald Colimon, Nathalie Colimon, Karl-Henry Colimon, Stephanie Colimon, Patrick Noel, Janai Walters, Jose Malary, James Malary, Arthur Malary, Jerry Fatal, Michelle Fatal, Jacques-Arthur Fatal, Mary-Joyce Fatal, Daniel Bleus, Jean Bleus, Rose Bleus, and Peter Blues.
Richard may not have attended church regularly, but that did not stop him from being a believer in the Lord. He had more faith then one would see in most. Besides being a devoted man to all who knew him, he was a heaven sent to our daughter, Aaliyah. Through his own struggles with his own health, he managed to stay on top of every task that Cancer threw at this family. Despite the hardships, Richard never stopped enjoying what he enjoyed the most, and that was dressing; no matter what, he stayed looking sharp. I believe that was his therapy. I always told him that was a trait he got from his mom, because, even at 80 years old, her clothes always matched. Richard recently obtained his barber’s license, and enjoyed giving haircuts to all, it didn’t matter if you could pay him or not, it was just something that he enjoyed.
After marriage, “Sha” left, and I was able to embrace Richard, a loving father, husband, and grandfather. He did things with our family, that I think, at times shocked him. Snorkeling, horseback riding, being a “cheer dad” to our cheerleader, and a granddaughter’s best friend. I could go on about how much my husband changed and continue to brag about the great man that he was, but all who knew him, know exactly what I’m talking about.
Richard passed away peacefully at age 43 on September 9, 2018, surrounded by love. He will be united in heaven where I know Mamiantione waits for her son! The most beautiful ending to his story
