Richard “Rick” Wilson of Blenheim and formerly of St. Thomas passed away on Friday October 23, 2020 at the age of 67. Rick was a millwright by trade and retired from Prestran Industries in St. Thomas. In his spare time, he was a very talented mandolin crafter and enjoyed bluegrass music. He and his wife Tina (Wiebe) were living proof that sometimes blind dates do work out as they recently celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary. They spent the last year together building their forever home doing as much work as they could themselves. Rick will be remembered with great fondness by his daughter Ashley Wilson of Goderich and his son Paul & Sherry Wilson of Stratford as well as his grandchildren Torri, Troy, Mazie, Sophia and Samantha. He was the son of Evelyn (Lavigne) & the late John Hargreaves and is survived by his only brother Gary Radford and his wife Liz. He is also be remembered by his mother-in-law, his brothers and sisters-in-law and by his nieces and nephews.
In keeping with Rick’s wishes, cremation has taken place and his family will remember him privately.
