OLSEN, Richard William 'Rick' -

I know Rick from Wheel-Trans where I was the manager

We used to talk at length about making Wheel-Trans better.

On a personal note I will never, ever forget one day when we were talking about family and he suddenly got a glint in his eye and with a huge smile said "Bill there is nothing better than being a grandpa" He was right!

May he rest in peace.

The sudden, tragic and shocking loss of my brother-in-law, Rick, is devastating. My heart is broken for my sister Linda and "the boys" Jeremy and Shaun, their wives, the grandchildren, Rick's brother, Wayne, his wife Gail, and his sister Susy and dear, dear Bea, Rick's mom - and all his close nieces and nephews - and all of the many family and friends who are suffering this terrible, loss. Rick will be deeply missed, he's a true solid link for the family and the community of generosity and compassion, from his work at Wheel Trans, helping the disabled and needy, to always being there for his family, friends and the community; always ready to help out anyone - with no strings. I sincerely hope all can take great comfort in knowing that Rick will really live on and be with everyone, forever, in all the cherished memories created over his lifetime. He lives on in those memories. I'm here for you all, as he has been for all of us over the years. Deepest, deepest condolences.
