Dick also leaves behind sister Gertie Saathoff brothers Ed and Wilf (Bonnie) and sister Deloris (Roy). Dick moved to Sparwood in 1990 for the beautiful scenery British Columbia had to offer. At which time Dick and his son Bill started a carpet installation business, he continued working with his daughter Terry into the late 90’s. Dick was a man of many trades, working hard was his middle name. Dick enjoyed summer holidays; camping, touring driving, and spending time with his children, grandchildren and
great grandchildren. When he first moved to Sparwood, picking up ice cream cones and going to the dump to watch the bears was his idea of a great Sunday afternoon. Dick had always worked hard. From the time he was very young in Saskatchewan where he was born and lived there till
moving to BC. He will be sadly missed by family and friends.
