    I have so many fond memories of our childhood days in Delhi Public School, not to mention the fact that our parents were friends and Gary bought my dads business, years ago.

    We are sorry too hear Rick has past away.. Rick will be greatly missed in Courtright Village. He was well known at the George’s Restaurant-Courtright Riverview Restaurant. St Clair Pkwy. Rick would be there to meet all his friends for tea in morning, tea in they afternoon . Talking about nothing just having fun. Very little politics, playing trivia and crosswords. Just a very friendly guy liked everyone. Also helping children he wanted to see children do well in life. He spent time with my grandson. Teaching him to play music, helping with math and other things. He was very proud of scott and Erin in their accomplishments in life. Rick will be missed very much. We all send our love an thoughts to his family. “Forever in our Hearts“ Rest In Peace!

  6. Monique and I send our sincerest sympathies to Rick's Family. While I didn't keep in touch as much as I should Rick, Maurice Popelier, Dave Barnhardt, and myself played many a golf course in from Bear Creek, to Black River in 2000-2001. They were some of my best memories of days gone by at Lambton. He will be missed, but never forgotten by many of his close friends. Too young to leave us. RIP. Dave Brophy.
