Rick co-owned Bell’s Plumbing + Heating with his uncle, Morris Kinsman and finished his career at Rana Medical. Rick excelled at anything he did and was always willing to give a helping hand.
Rick had a passion for sports and was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan. If he was not watching sports on TV, he was present watching his seven grandkids. Rick’s hobbies were golfing, curling, fishing, snowmobiling and making homemade wine.
When he wasn’t volunteering for the Elks and in the earlier years for the Morden Fire Department, he was traveling and living the good life at the cottage.
Rick was a good-hearted soul who left a positive impression with everyone he met – Rick had the ability to talk to anyone! We were extremely blessed to have him in our lives and our world will not be same without him.
