With love and great sadness Rick’s family announce his passing at home in Bracebridge on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at the age of 75 years.
Cherished husband of Jenny Specht and loving father, Rick is survived by Jen, his children Tyler (Becky), Lyndsey Page (Jimmy), Kyp (Holly), Des Quintas (Rico) and his stepdaughters Devon Specht and Amanda Specht (Sylvain). Proud grandfather of 7 and great-grandfather of 1. Survived by brother Kevin (Maggie). Predeceased by sisters Wendy and Janis and brother Christopher.
As life ends, the true measure of a man lies not in what he had, it lies in what he gave, in the size of his heart. Rick saw the best in everyone, wished only the best for all, was always ready to lend a helping hand. Confidant, head cheerleader, gentle guide, Rick gave the best advice, the best hugs and he had the biggest of hearts. We will treasure his memory and miss him forever.
In accordance with Rick’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family gathering will be held at a later date.
For those who wish and in memory of Rick, memorial donations to the Kidney Foundation https://kidney.ca/ would be most welcomed.
