Rick passed away suddenly at the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital, in his 63rd year.

Rick’s family and friends will remember him as a fun-loving and carefree guy who enjoyed family time. Rick was always there for every family event and always eager to lend a helping hand. His passions included: collecting antiques, driving and caring for his 1990 Buick Reatta convertible and going to the Casino.

Rick was a dedicated employee of St. Gregory’s Catholic School. As a custodian he interacted with many students and staff and enjoyed his relationships with them.

He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed!
