The man with nine lives has taken his last breath just shy of his 76th birthday. Rick was known by many different names – Husband, father, Grandpa, Papa, son, brother, uncle, friend or Bone. Over the last few years, he has struggled with health issues, but he kept on fighting. He could come off as a scrooge, but he would also give you the shirt off his back. Rick was not one to travel, as his favourite spot was veranda beach on King Street. Rick was an employee of Serv-A-Station Ltd. for over 30 years. Rick was married to Susan (nee Hall) for 53 years. He will be sadly missed by his children Lori and Shawn Fraser, Mandy and Dwayne MacDonald and Richard Jr. His grandchildren Joshua, Jackson, Samantha, James and Lexi were the light of his life. He is now with his granddaughter Mikayla in heaven, as well as his parents Morris and Isabel and siblings Louise and Jack. Loving brother of Cindy and Mike de Nobriga, Rosemary and Andrew Gringhuis and brother-in-law Donald Hutchinson. His many nieces and nephews will cherish their memories of him. A celebration of Rick’s life will take place upstairs in the Royal Canadian Legion – 280 King St. W Dundas on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 from 1:30pm-4:00pm. Donations can be made in memory to Bereaved Families of Ontario-South Central Region or The Salvation Army-Dundas.
The world could use a lot more Rick’s.
I always enjoyed bumping into him. He’ll be missed by many.
Dear Susan & Family. ………..Our thoughts are with you at this sad and difficult time.Hugs💓 RIP Rick
Love and strength
You were Lori’s dad to us
We are known as going across
Loved sharing birthdays and events like Canada 🇨🇦 day concerts
Hope you are singing in heaven
Dear Susan and family—we are sending our loving thoughts and prayers after your terrible loss. From our short time of meeting Rick and spending some time with him during our last trip to Dundas we could tell he was a very unique individual. He did not fool either of us as we both immediately saw a loving man with a big heart . We know he will be deeply missed by many who loved him. We are so sorry for your loss and hope you find strength to face the days ahead and loving memories of Rick to forever hold in your heart.

Dear Susan, Richard, Lori and Mandy,
You are in our hearts during this difficult time and we are there for you in any way you may need.
Rick always gave me a hard time which I know meant I was in his good books. I already miss him and Bone’s Lodge won’t feel quite the same anymore.
Lots of Love
Nick, Prianka and Zaiden
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Susan and your family. Hugs Allan and Marilyn Hall.
So very sorry for your loss
Zess family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
