Passed away peacefully at the Hospice Residential Home with his family by his side on July 12, 2014 at the age of 65 years. Cherished husband and best friend of 44 years to Sharron (nee Orford). Loving dad "Pops" to Shane and Kelly, and Ryan and Denise. Proud grandfather "Pooba" to Olivia and Lillie. Dear brother to Leroy Sylvestre (2008), Claire and Bill (2012) McClung, Sandra and Terry Walker, and Denise and Wayne Findlay. He will be missed terribly by his family and many friends whose lives he has touched. Rick will be remembered for his 20 years of service as a Volunteer Firefighter in Maidstone Twp., and was also retired from Chrysler Canada after 33 years. Words cannot express our appreciation to Jessica and Amber from the CCAC support team and all the staff and volunteers at Hospice Residential Home. Their exceptional care and support allowed us to continue to be together as a family. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Hospice Residential Home and would be greatly appreciated. Visiting will take place at
