January 9, 1958 - December 9, 2023

In Loving Memory ~

We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden death of Rick Davis, better known as Sugar Bear or just Bear. He was born in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, January 9, 1958 and passed away December 9, 2023 in Surrey BC. Rick lived many years in Houston BC during the 70's and 80's working at the Northwood sawmill.He then used Calgary and Surrey as his home base for construction and ironwork.

Rick is survived by his daughter Faeline, twin brother Mick (Colleen aka Suzy) Davis, sisters Patty (Tom) Giesbrecht and Terri (Brad) Humphreys, sister-in-law Carol (Jim) Davis and brother-in-law Gene Wallace as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by mom CoraLee Davis, eldest sister Trudi Wallace, brother Jim (aka Woody) Davis, and brother and sister-in-law Ted and Kelly Davis.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, June 1, 2024 at the home of Patty and Tom Giesbrecht, 6219 Brown Rd, Burns Lake, BC. The celebration will begin at 2 PM, followed by spreading of the ashes, then an informal get-together in the yard. Bring a lawn chair but no pot-luck items. We will be providing snacks and light beverages.

If you would like to say a few words or send a note to be read aloud by someone else (because studies show that people fear public speaking more than death), please contact Mick or Patty beforehand. Or you can spontaneously wing it at the celebration just as Bear would do it.

In lieu of flowers, kindly donate to your local Salvation Army.
