Rick passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. He was born in Brandon, Manitoba on February 19, 1948 during a “blinding snowstorm” to Avionics and Pamela Lelonde.  He married the love of his life, Mary Lelonde, in El Cerrito, California in 1978.  Rick is survived by his spouse, his mother (Pamela Josephine), his four siblings, and his three children; Deborah Webster (Dwayne), Christopher Lelonde, and Pamela Lelonde (Tom Billings). He was blessed by his seven grandchildren who lit up his eyes; Lilyanna, Dahlia, Maverick, Hayden, Madison, Serena, and Liberty. Rick also leaves behind numerous relatives and treasured friends in Canada and the United States.  He will be sorely missed.  He joined the Royal Canadian Navy as a leading seaman in 1966, was commissioned from the ranks in 1985, and retired as a Lieutenant Commander in August of 1996. Rick was passionate about his hobbies, golfing, and fishing. He happily shared his expertise and enthusiasm for fishing with his friends and family on his fishing boat the “Lucky Coho”.  As quoted by his wife, Mary, Rick was always proud to have been a “Pusser”.
