Richard Toews

1925 – 2011

With a fond farewell, his family announce the passing of “Uncle Rick”.

Richard Henry Toews was born in Prince Albert, SK on May 21, 1925 and passed away at the Seniors Village in Williams Lake on July 21, 2011 at the age of 86.

“Uncle Rick” came to the Cariboo in 1946 with his family and lived most of his life here, with many of those years at Beaver Valley. He had a special place in his heart for his niece and nephews, inviting them for weekend sleepovers in their younger days, filling their days with fishing, horseback riding, motor biking and when a little older snowmobiling and sledding down the big hill.

Rick was predeceased by his parents Hannah & Corny (Cornelius), his older brother Ben, sister-in-law Agathe, and the love of his life Molly. He is survived by his younger brother Larry (Issie), niece Brenda (Leroy), nephews Dale (Christine) and Roger and six greats; Shandi (Jason), Forrest, Tristin, Connor, Corbin and Dylan. He will be missed by all. No service is planned.

Thank you “Uncle Rick” for all the good times and great memories, we will cherish them forever.
