It is with heavy hearts, extreme sorrow and sadness in which we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our father, friend, son, and brother Richard (Rick) Jason Reed on Friday May 27, 2022.
Left to cherish his memory are his children Mackenzie, Danielle, and Brennan, close friend and mother of his children Jackie, his mother Nirene, sister Aleica (Jason), brother Brian (Kyla), father Richard, aunt Anne (John), nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and co-workers.
Rick was pre deceased by his nana Irene and grandpa Jack.
Rick was born in Ontario. His family later moved to Alberta where he eventually went on to work for Bob’s Space Racers Inc. (BSR). During his time with BSR Rick was able to travel all across Canada and the US. He made many friendships and created many memories during that time. Rick came off the road when his first child was born in 2003. In 2006 Rick and Jackie bought the hotel in Marchand, his second child was born that same year. Rick ran the hotel until the end of 2007. In 2008 his third and last child was born. Rick then went on to work for EBD enterprises. Rick loved everyone he worked with and enjoyed his job.
Rick loved his children more than anything. They were his world. He was always there for every school field trip and event. He was always very proud to watch Mackenzie’s figure skating and Danielle and Brennan’s hockey games. He was always there to cheer them on. He would do anything for his kids. He loved taking them to movies, finding new shows for everyone to watch and playing video games with his son.
The family would like to thank the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS), paramedics, doctors and nurses who cared for him on the day of his accident.
Forever loved, always missed.
In lieu of flowers the family would like you to donate to a charity of your choice in Ricks honour.
A Celebration of Life will be held on June 25, 2022 at 2 pm at Crossings Funeral Care, 12E-40 North Gate Drive, Steinbach, Manitoba.
