Passed peacefully on June 8, 2022 in the Smiths Falls Hospital at the age of 65. Predeceased by his parents Robert and Rita Brunette (nee Evoy) and his sister Heather Brunette. Rick leaves behind his children Natasha Strickland (Archie) and Brandon Lemax (Angela); his siblings Judy Allan (Howard), Bob Brunette (Cathy), Arlene Brunette, and Terry Garland (Glen); as well as his four beautiful grandchildren and his nieces and nephews. He will also be missed by his special friend Jackie and her family. Rick was well known in town and a friend to many; he greatly enjoyed socializing with his friends and visiting the bowling alley before his health declined. A private graveside service will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses at the Smiths Falls Hospital for their care and compassion. If desired, donations to the Salvation Army in Rick’s honour would be greatly appreciated.
