My condolences Steff on your loss.
Far too young to lose someone with such a promising future.
Take care of yourself.
Richard Arthur Knebel (formerly Leyland), age 33, loving husband to his wife, Stefanie Knebel, passed away unexpectedly on August 13th, 2022, in Ottawa, Ontario. He was born on March 21st, 1989, in New Westminster BC and attended Simon Fraser University for his undergraduate degree, the University of Cambridge for his Masters, and Queen's University for his PhD in mathematics. He worked for Communications Security Establishment as a Cryptographer.
Richard was a brilliant mathematician. He could work with something new and learn it faster than anyone I ever met. He loved his wife very much and reminded her with little love notes each morning before he left for work. He was an artist at heart, and he could often be found playing his guitar and singing, always carrying guitar picks in his pocket. He loved going on car rides and his wife and him would go on many adventures. They travelled around Europe, Ireland, across Canada, and parts of the U.S. He was very much loved by his wife and will be greatly missed.
He also leaves behind his parents, Edna and Ramish Leyland, his sister, Nicole Hall (Connor Hall) and his beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A short celebration of his life will be held at a later date in Kingston, Ontario and another across Canada in British Columbia. Please contact Peter Taylor or Stefanie Knebel for further information.
