Rick was born on October 23, 1952 to Grace Harlock (nee Fox) and Frederick Harlock as their second child with a few years apart from his older brother. There were many stories of him tagging along and being a pesky little brother to Mike. He grew up in the West End of Winnipeg attending Greenway, Sargent Park and Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. Dad was a West End boy through and through living in the area until his passing.
Rick played many sports when he was younger and enjoyed baseball. Playing for Naleway foods and eventually a bit of slow pitch as an adult. He had many long-time friends growing up and just after high school took a love interest in Leslie Ferguson. They later married in 1976 and had two children of their own. Staying in touch with all his neighbourhood friends throughout adulthood. He enjoyed a few years of curling at Thistle Curling Club, weekends at the West Hawk and Falcon Lake, volunteering at Isaac Brock Community Centre, and loved his Bombers and the Jets.
Rick was predeceased by his mother Grace and father Fred, his brother Mike (Marlene), and the love of his life Leslie (wife).
He is survived by his two children, Julie, Erin (Darin) and their daughter Alexis; his loving mother-in-law Audrey, and brother-in-law Dean (Shelly).
Thank you to all of his close friends who kept in touch with Dad after Mom's passing, He was never the same and it meant a lot to us that you all kept in touch.
Thank you to all the staff at the Grace Hospital as well as the Riverview Stroke Ward for many years of excellent care.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Sad to hear, Rick & I grew up together, lived about 5 houses apart, remember many summer & winter days playing outside, we used to smack golf balls at one another in the old army field by the baseball diamonds, think my hands are still stinging from those old clubs. My deepest condolences to the family & friends John Lambrecht - Posted by: John Lambrecht (friend) on: Jun 15, 2021
Sorry for your loss Erin and Julie. He was one of a kind. - Posted by: matthew lavery (cousin) on: Jun 15, 2021
Spent many years at the Thistle with Rick. Always upbeat and a gret friend to either play against or play with. Rest in peace my friend and say hi to Leslie. - Posted by: Dave & Esther Livingstone (curling friends) on: Jun 15, 2021
Mr. Harlock was one of a kind! Always made you feel like one of the family, I will always remember his awesome sense of humour and quick one liners. Trips to the lake in the wood panel van, many ringette and baseball games. He was our biggest fan! My heart is with you Julie and Erin, hopefully our Dads are sharing some drinks in heaven. - Posted by: Dana Heroux (Friend of Daughters) on: Jun 15, 2021
