UHRICH, Richard - It is with very heavy hearts we would like to inform you that Rick Uhrich has passed away on the morning of September 4, 2014 at the age of 60. Rick is survived by his wife Jill and his two children Jesse and Clare, his brother Brad, his sister Janet and many nieces and nephews. Rick was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and attended Luther College and graduated from the University of Regina. Everybody who knew Rick was aware of his passion for hockey. Rick was an accomplished hockey player, winning the 1973-74 Memorial Cup with the Regina Pats. His passion for hockey stayed with him for his entire life as he enjoyed coaching and playing recreational hockey. In January of 1992, Rick founded ISA and led this company for over 22 years to what it is today, one of the largest IT Security providers in Canada. Rick had a few more passions: for life, friends, music, golf, travel, laughing and Sleeman's Cream Ale, but his greatest passion was for his children Jesse and Clare. Rick was a tremendous business leader, a loving husband, father, brother and friend. He will be dearly missed by everyone whose lives he has touched with his love, generosity and joie de vivre! A Celebration of Rick's Life will be held at the Markland Wood Golf Club, 245 Markland Drive, Toronto, on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 7 p.m. Online condolences may be made through

Dear Jill, I am just finding out now that you lost Rick last September. I am so sorry to hear of his sudden passing. It was always so wonderful to watch him on the fabulous Pats lineup in the 70's. Been a long time, but I always remember you and your family, with our Mom's curling together. Your brother Dick and I went to a whole season of Pats games during our university days. My sincere condolences to you and your children and Rick's extended family.

Jill and family,
I am unbelievably saddened at hearing the news of Rick's passing. He was easily one of the kindest, nicest people I have ever had the pleasure to know. His was the face I always looked for first at the various Pat reunions we have had over the years. I will miss him.

I went to Luther with Rick and have great memories of our time together on various Luther Lions' teams - as a small school we relied on the strength of character of guys like Rick to keep us going. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Jill and family,
In high school, Rick was always the best guy int the class. Smartest. Best athlete. And the person who always made everyone feel like they mattered, that they counted for something.
I am so sorry for your loss.

Cousin Rick was my hero in 1974 when he and the rest of the Regina Pats came to Calgary and won the Memorial Cup. That magnificent smile told the tale of an accomplishment that I am sure he treasured always. Condolences from the Grant Walker family.

So sorry for your loss. What a special man you all had for way to short of time. I had the pleasure of playing with Rick for 4-5 seasons in the summer for the wings. One time I was doing a golf fundraiser for my sons hockey team and I asked Rick if he would be interested in coming. He said that he could not make it but he would like to donate. I told him don't worry about it. Well a week later he gives me a cheque. Not to many people I know would even remember to give. I will miss our hockey room banter with each other.

Shocking news, so sad. I knew Rick from playing Saturday morning hockey together here in Toronto. Rick recognized my last name and realized the relationship connection as he was good friends with my uncle Mal Isaac from Regina. We were often on line together and he was inspirational with his determination and skill. Rick was sneaky fast and had a eye for the net. He loved the game, he will be missed.

I remember growing up in Regina with the Uhrich family living across the lane on York St. Rick and his dad were always organizing baseball or hockey games in the neighbourhood. That is how I remember learning to play sports. It is very sad to hear of Rick's passing at such a young age.
Condolences to all of Rick's family.
