November 12 1954 – July 21 2012 We are saddened to announce the passing of Eric “”Rick”” Gaisford at the age of 57. Rick passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 21st at 4:05 pm due to complications resulting from heart surgery. He was surrounded by his family and pastor. He is survived by Carmen, his loving wife of 29 years, his sons Jason and Jordan, his mother Shelia, and his sisters Fran and Marjorie.

Rick was kind and generous and enjoyed helping other people. He took pleasure in getting involved in his local community, with The Knights of Columbus 4th Degree, The St. Matthew’s 10:30 Choir, The Vancouver Golf Club Wednesday Golfers, The Soundscape Choir, COSA, Doctors Without Borders, and many more.

Rick was courageous and strong, facing a number of major health issues from his teenage years until he passed away. His will to survive inspired and amazed countless people, including his doctors.

Rick worked as an engineer, a salesman, and a draftsman at Pull Master Winch Corporation, and later as a realtor with Royal LePage.

He was an avid golfer, technology enthusiast, and loved to travel and sing.

Prayer service will be held at St. Matthew’s Parish in Surrey on Thursday, July 26th at 7 pm. The funeral service and reception will also be held at St. Matthew’s on Friday, July 27th at 10:30 am. 16079 88th Ave Surrey BC.
