He will be deeply missed by his family and by everyone who knew him.

Rick was born in Toronto, Ontario on April 5, 1955, and had a 40-year long career as an eyeglass technician. He was a happy man who had a special gift for betting at the racetrack and playing the lottery. Rick also enjoyed watching old classic films, wrestling and hockey, while being close to his family brought him much joy.
