Richard John Carrier
We regret to advise of the death of Richard John Carrier on 10 February 2014 in Provost, AB at 62 years of age after a brief battle with cancer.
Rick was raised in Prince Albert and attended school there until 1963 when the family relocated to Saskatoon. He continued his education in Saskatoon and, in 1970, wanting to find his way, Rick joined the military. Rick became a Field Engineer after completion of his Basic Sapper training in Chilliwack but, after 10 years in this trade, he decided to re-muster to become an electrician. During his military career Rick was stationed at CFB Chiliwack, CFB Shilo, CFB Moose Jaw, CFB Suffield and, as a final posting, back to CFB Shilo where he retired in August of 1995. Rick and his family chose to make their new home in Killam, AB.
Upon retirement Rick began to work at the Sedgewick Co-op Building Centre. He worked there until 1997 at which time he joined the John Deere Dealership team in Killam as a partsman. 2011 brought the opportunity for advancement in his career as a Parts Manager at the Provost store. He continued to grow with this company until he could no longer physically return to his duties.
Funeral Service is on Saturday, 15 February 2014 at 2:00pm at New Hope Gospel Church in Provost, AB.
