Born in Alameda, CA to the late Daniel and Dominica Tabisaura. Father of Joseff and Joshua Tabisaura; grand-father to Jackson and Noah Tabisaura and Kassandra Stoddart; brother to Daniel (Linda) Tabisaura, Helen Hart, Nancy (Florencio) Cautiverio, Christine and Barbara Tabisaura; uncle to Christine (Nick) Singh, Robbie and Ryan Hart, Ben (Jessica) Cautiverio and Brian Tabisaura; and grand-uncle to Samantha (Omar) Qasem, Alexandria Pastran, Benny, Trina and Kaija Cautiverio.
Richard enjoyed working on and fixing cars. He often dropped what he was doing to help his family and friends with car repairs which led him to become a senior auto mechanic at Broadway Ford Motors and retired. He loved cooking and his favorite was chicken adobo that he learned from his mother. He created his own special barbeque sauce that was enjoyed and requested by his family, friends and co-workers.
Richard was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 15, 1972 and remained faithful to Jehovah until his death. He will be sorely missed by family and friends. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 2:30 P.M. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2039 Lincoln Ave., Alameda.
