RICK, William Sadler At the Markham-Stouffville Hospital on May 31, 2007 in his 80th year. Husband of Miriam (Carmichael) for 58 years. Proud father of Wilma (Gar Grainger) of Dorval, PQ, Janet (Dr. Denis Vaillancourt) of Mont St. Hilaire, PQ, Norma (Brian Lockwood, CA) of Uxbridge, ON, Allen (died accidentally in 1971), John (Barbara Bergeron, CA) of Kanata, Anne (John Taylor) of Brockville, Jill of Chelsea, PQ and Richard Rick-Tent. Survived by his sister Eleanor (Maleck Besmargin) of Danville, PQ, sister-in-law Sue Carmichael of Brockville and 19 grandchildren and extended family. Bill was the son of Ned and Dorothy Rick of Danville, Quebec. Following a short stint in the Canadian military at the end of WWII, Bill worked for Johns-Manville Canada, then attended Sir George Williams University before joining Reynold Chain in Quebec City. In the midst of starting a family with Meum, Bill founded HP Power Drives Ltd. in Montreal with his friends George Tratt and the late John Griffin. Together, the three partners built Power Drives into a successful business. In the 1970s, Bill combined his passion for politics and his love for his family by seeking election as a commissioner and then Chairman of the Eastern Townships Regional School Board. Bill was also an active member and Trustee of the Trinity United Church in Danville. The 1960-80s were busy years as the Danville home became the base for the growing family (plus pets!). In the 1980s, Bill retired from Power Drives and he and Meum moved from Danville to Brockville where he pursued his love of sailing as a nautical navigator by competing in the Marion to Bermuda Yacht Race. As a lifelong Liberal, some of Bill's favourite moments were spent campaigning for Liberal candidates in Leeds and Grenville. Later on, between world travels, Bill and Meum relocated to Port Perry where Bill and Meum enjoyed the expanded family and closely followed politics. Bill's was a life truly well lived. The family would like to thank Drs. Newton and Selucki and the caring staff of the Markham-Stouffville Hospital. Visitation Sunday 2-4 and 7-9 pm at Irvine Funeral Home, 4 James St., Brockville. Funeral at St. Lawrence Anglican Church, Pine and Park Streets, Brockville at 11:00 am on Monday, June 4. Memorial service and interment in Danville, PQ to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Markham-Stouffville Hospital Foundation (905-472-7059) would be appreciated. "Farewell my friends Farewell my foes! My peace with these My love with those. The bursting tears; my heart declare; Farewell the bonnie banks of Ayr" -Robert Burns Published in the Ottawa Citizen on 6/2/2007 Published in the Montreal Gazette on 6/2/2007
