It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our much loved husband and father, Rick Turner, at the young age of 62. Rick quietly passed away January 24, 2016 at the Edmonton General Palliative/Hospice Unit after a brief, but very courageous battle with brain cancer.
Rick was born in Comox, BC, and raised on Vancouver Island. It was in Victoria where he met Barbara. They married in 1977 and moved to the Comox Valley in 1989 to raise their young family. After 23 years in the Valley, they became empty-nesters, and Rick and Barb were excited to start a new adventure in their lives and moved to Edmonton, Alberta to live closer to their sons.
Many special lifelong memories of Rick will be held by his wife Barbara, his sons, Ben (Chelsea) and Jesse (Robin), as well as his siblings Susan (Warren), Gail, Mike (Janis), and Brian. Rick holds a special place in the hearts of many family members and leaves behind beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews as well as many cherished friends of long ago and present. His quick wit, great sense of humour and love of sharing a beer and conversation with everyone will be sadly missed by all.
The family looks forward to sharing memories in a Celebration of Rick’s Life to be held in the Comox Valley at a later date in 2016.
