It is with a profound sense of loss and sadness that we tell you of Rick’s passing at the age of 53 on January 4th. Memories of their all too short life together will be cherished by his loving devoted wife and soul mate, Holly; his children Paul, Milly and Joe (their mother Dawn) as well as Holly’s children, Jessica and Adam. Rick’s mother, Norma, his father, Art along with his siblings Stephen (Colleen), Lynn (John), Mark (Candy), Lisa (Darren) and Aaron (Renee) in New Brunswick and Roger (Alex) here in Calgary will forever hold his memory close to their hearts. He was a thoughtful and caring uncle and will be missed by Alex, Connor, Mel, Mike, Vanessa, Zack, Brandon and Lucas. His brother Brian predeceased Rick, in 2004. Numerous family, friends and colleagues from coast to coast will miss his company immensely.
A celebration of Rick’s life will be held at Lester B Pearson High School (3020 52 St. N.E. Calgary, AB) in the main gym on Sunday, January 11th at 1:30 p.m. Rick’s ashes will be lovingly returned home to Miramichi, NB for a Memorial Mass at St. Michael’s Basilica on Saturday, January 17th, at 11:00 am. with Father John E. Fraser presiding.
