Richard Joseph Kroetsch
1945 to 2021

Rick passed away surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, November 20th. He will live on forever in the hearts of many including partner, Lynne; stepdaughters, Susan (Mark) and Sheila (Dale). He was affectionately referred to as “Popa” by his five grandchildren, Isabella, Ava, Angelina, Paige, and Ryan.

Rick was the youngest of ten children and spent his early years on the farm in Strome, Alberta. He is survived by his brother, Ed and wife Gwen; sisters, Catherine and Donna; sister-in-law, Doris; and Lynne’s sister, Jill. He is predeceased by his sister, Margaret (Andre Borle); brothers, Martin (Hilda), Father Tom, Lorne, John (Rosa) and Father Don.

Rick was a very charming and genuine person who was blessed with a loving family and many life-long friends. His sharp wit and great sense of humour always made time spent with Rick very memorable. His passions ranged from planes and aviation to playing bridge and golf. After retiring as an accountant and business owner, Rick and Lynne lived out their golden years travelling the world, enjoying their winter home in Sun City West, playing bridge, and enjoying friends and family.

Rick would always end conversation with a warm smile and say … “we be talkin”
