June 11, 1977 - January 27, 2021

It is with great sorrow we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Rick Blanco, on January 27th 2021. He was predeceased by his father Wayne; and grandparents, Wesley, Vermer, Cyril and Angnes.


He leaves to cherish his memory and mourn his passing his mother, Marlene and Savannah Rae; partner Hope, with step-daughters, Skylar, Charley and Jayden. His brother Mark; sister-in-law Kim; niece Kyla; and nephews, Reid, and Ryan. His sister Natalie; nephews, Ayden, and Dakota; as well as niece McKenzy. Special Aunt Dede, and Uncle Ted. Also, many Uncles, Aunts and Cousins.


Rick was employed at NRG as an HVAC technician. A company he enjoyed working for very much as he had a great bunch of co-workers.


Rick deeply loved his animals. They were always considered the 4-legged kids. Chevy and Nova (the dogs), MC, Lukey, and Mr. Cow (the cats) miss him dearly. All were rescues as he was never afraid to take in an animal that needed a soft place to land.


Rick absolutely loved the outdoors. Fishing, Snowmobiling, Camping and exploring new adventures with Hope.


He was known for his practical jokes, His kind heart and the big grin on his face. Wooooo! He loved socializing with numerous friends. Always enjoying his backyard after a hard day’s work.


We will miss you Rick. Always and forever. We never got the chance to say goodbye. We will carry you in our hearts forever and remember you always.


Love you son, brother and friend. Until we meet again, rest in peace.



“Love you, Bye”
