RICHARD ALLAN BOIVIN
After a lengthy illness, Richard (Rick) Boivin passed away surrounded by family.
Rick will be missed by his parents, Bill and Arlene; sister Katherine (Glenn); niece Stephanie (Max); great-nephew Owen; nephews, Justin and Quintan; long time friends, Brian (Krista); gaming buddies and friends, Chris (go Bears) and Mike (Jocelyn).
Rick was born in Pinawa, Manitoba and lived there until after graduating, when he moved to Winnipeg to further his education.
He enjoyed working at Monarch Industries for 21 years until his health caused him to go on long term disability.
He was fiercely independent and never let his disability define him. He was an avid sports fan and he attended Moose, Jets, Bombers and Goldeyes games.
As per Rick's wishes, there will be no formal service and cremation has taken place.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Rick's name to a charity of your choice.
Thank you to the Eagle's Way Staff at Oakview Place for all your kindness and care.
