Rick J. Vercaigne
It is with extremely heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and untimely passing of our dear Rick ‘Bird’ Vercaigne, in his 58th year.
Predeceased by his beloved mother Mariette Vercaigne-Pattyn (2011), his father Maurice Vercaigne (1964), and his step father Maurice Pattyn (2005). Rick lost his dearly loved wife Nancy Vercaigne in 1995, and dear friend Johnny Watt in 2015. Bird is survived by his loved and cherished best childhood friend turned brother Grant Smith, his wife Barb Smith, Debbie Watt, and “The Anderson Sisters” (Connie, Cathy, Carole and Cindy). Bird is the deeply loved and admired Uncle, godfather, and “second dad” to Tana and Corinna Smith.
A private service will be held on Friday November 4, 2016.
A Celebration of Life at the Hermitage Club, 1040 Commissioners Road in Byron will begin at 7 pm on Friday November 4, 2016; any friends of Bird’s are welcome to come say farewell to one of the very best.
Bird, we love you, and will miss you always –
you’ve left a hole in our hearts, and in our lives, nothing will ever be the same without you.
