Richard George Birks
     Richard George Birks was born on 22 February 1949 in Cottingham, Yorkshire, England.1,2 He was the son of George Lamb Birks and Jean Elliot. After attending Art College in Hull, Richard worked for a firm in London, which then sent him to Brussels. Richard had been trained as a graphic designer and he had the meticulous eye of an expert in his field. No detail in graphics was too small to escape his scrutiny. After a time, he and two partners, set up their own design business there in Brussels. Eventually, he set up his own design firm.3 Richards partners introduced him to Barbara Moreton and her daughter Gennie. Barbara was also artistic by nature, and her work entailed the retouching of photographs, painstakingly painting out imperfections.3 He married Barbara M C Moreton in 1983 in Stockport, Cheshire, England, some whould same this marriage was the smartest thing Richard ever did. They decided to move permanently to England and Richard insisted they lived in Arkengarth.4,3 Although they moved to England Richard was convinced he could work remotely and retain his customer base. Alas, it was not to be. So he was one of the first to work at the new Tesco when it opened in Catterick in the year 2000. He also worked at the Red Lion.3 Richard died on 30 December 2017 in Yorkshire, England, aged 68 in a car accident.3 The funeral service for Richard took place on 13 January 2018 in St Mary's Church, Arkengarthdale, Yorkshire, England, The eulogy was given by Peter Birks an excellent choice to a very full church, even the upstairs balcony was full, which shows how Richard was thought of by those who knew him. Peter was one of Richard's cousins, he mentioned two others who also attended Mike from Newcastle and Emily from Italy. A local bus brought a large contingent of people from Tescos. Peter told of Richard being an intense and passionate person. Once settled in Arkengarthdale, Richard was loath to leave the Dales, even for a holiday. I believe he only left the country twice over the next 20 odd years. He loved it here; the people, the scenery, the feel of the countryside. He took keen interest in the various comings and goings, he was a church warden here at St. Mary’s, secretary of the Sport’s Association for several years, and was instrumental in setting up the Reeth Gazette.3

She married Stephen Henry Birks, son of Hugh Reginald Birks and Catherine Vansteenwinckel, in 1980.1 Hugh and Catherine invited friends, neighbours and relatives to their "open" house over the weekend of their diamond wedding anniversary. Over 100 people turned up over the period and I understand a great time was had by all.1
