I worked with Rick for years and after work helped with his horses and helped with hay. Before I left the province I came back and worked with him again. Quit. Lol. Yet always ordered chickens and feed and chatted we were friends. I helped him always his shop I stained every board on that place. My self and Rick would fight and argue everyday over everything. Yet when you had a house or cottage build by us we fought about how much better we could do the work. Fight about what to do first or organization. Yet everyday so much respect. I will miss Rick so much. Because when we fought everyday we worked together for years. It was always so much respect for each other. I will miss you forever Rick. Was a mentor in so many ways . And his actions spoke louder then his angry words lol. Great man who always talked and missed his wife . I never met her yet Rick loved her to his last breath.


Our deepest condolences go out to the bereaved - we are so sad that we were not able to meet each other - we have already booked a flight to Canada for July and will also visit Parry Sound - Christiane Mandl and family from Austria
