Rick was born at the Grace Hospital and lived his entire life as a proud native Calgarian, growing up in the Bowness area. Rick loved more than anything to be on the golf course and was known to never miss watching a Flames game. He was a passionate business owner and extremely proud of his Protech team. Rick also was a devoted partner, father, brother, uncle, friend and boss. He was a kind generous soul and loving dog owner to Spencer.
The family wishes to acknowledge the nurses, staff and volunteers at the Agape Hospice for all the care that they showed to Rick and his family during this time.
