Passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on June 28, 2013. He will be dearly missed by his wife Kelly and his 6 children: Brad, Dave, Alex (Boomer), Katie, Sam and Mitchell and his two siblings Suzanne and Larry. Dick was described best as a ''high octane'' guy who spent his early years in Ontario and most of his adult life in Vancouver. He was very generous with his time and gave back to his community through various volunteer groups. His love of life and positive attitude was infectious. He left an indelible mark on everyone blessed to be a part of his full and accomplished life. He will ultimately be remembered for his love of family and friends, his never-ending pursuit of a fun time and his passion for a fulfilled and meaningful life. Thank you to Dr. Paul Sugar and the nurses from Vancouver Coastal Health for your wonderful care.
