We mourn the passing of Rick in Mission BC on October 12th, 2022, after a struggle with Cancer. Rick was raised in Saskatchewan and graduated from Luther College in Regina.
Always, an ardent traveler, he went to Expo 67 in Montreal, plus going through the United States and working in Cuba before coming to BC.
He moved to Maple Ridge in the early 70s and was active in the community, working in various aspects of the construction industry for most of his life.
Rick leaves behind daughter Brandee, son Ryan, granddaughter Ellie, sister Judee, and brother Mac.
Special thanks to all his supporters from various community organizations, Fraser Health, and the Abbotsford Cancer Agency teams, especially Brenda in his last days.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mission Friendship Centre, Friends in Need Foodbank in Maple Ridge, or Fraser House in Mission.
Rick will be interred in Salem SK with his parents Mildred (Millie) and Robert (Bob) McWhinney.
