Rick lived a colourful life, first moving to Barrie, Ontario, where he met Debbie. The couple moved to St. Albert, Alberta in 1975 where the couple built a life, later settling in Spruce Grove, Alberta in 1980. Rick was known for his contagious laugh and generous nature which is aptly reflected through his many years of raising money for, feeding, and donating to those of no fixed address. Rick will be best remembered by his grandchildren for his unique nicknames given at birth and his hilarious, often vulgar, jokes.
No funeral services will be held and a celebration of life will take place in July 2022.
