Rick was raised in Thunder Bay Ontario, and moved to Kitchener Ontario where he worked at Uniroyal Goodrich until its closing. He then enjoyed his retirement; fishing, camping, working on cars, and spending time with friends and family. Rick had a great sense of humour, would strike up a conversation with anyone, and was always there to lend a helping hand to whoever needed it.
Rick will be greatly missed by his Mother Daphne, son Matthew (Sheena), his brothers and sisters Mendy (Paul), Wanda (Seppo), Valerie (Bruce), Teresa (David), Roger (Debbie), and Roy (Marg), along with his nieces, nephews, and by his beloved friend Mary Anne Griffin (Tina and John Jr.). Rick was preceded in death by his Father Floyd.
Fulfilling Rick’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
