In Celebration of

Richard O'Rourke

February 25, 1947 -  May 13, 2021

Surrounded by his loving family, Richard O'Rourke passed away peacefully at his home on May 13th, 2021 at the age of 74.

Known well for his strong work ethic, adventurous spirit and willingness to always lend a helping hand, Richard always believed and practised living life to its fullest. Good times and stories were never a stranger to him, and he will be missed by countless friends at his frequently visited tennis clubs, golf courses and breweries alike.

He is survived by his wife Thérèse, daughter Catherine (Kevin) and son Mathieu (Sandy).
Gramps will also be greatly missed by his grandsons/"galloots" Logan, Spencer, Tyler, Jesse, and Mason.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

I was really sad to hear that Richard had passed away. He was a very good kind person. From the time I first met Richard, he greeted me and treated me like one of the family. Denise and I had alot of really good times golfing with Richard and Den at Upper Canada Village. We also really enjoyed the Christmas Eve parties at the O'Rourke residence. Bon voyage to a bon vivant !

We were all very sad to hear of Richard’s passing. From day one, he treated us like family. Very generous and happy to greet us with hugs at family gatherings. He was fascinated to hear the many futsal stories from my dad that he even came to PCHS to watch Melly in some intense futsal games out of curiosity- and he enjoyed it immensely! Alain, myself, Melissa and Alex are sending all our love to Therese, Mathieu, Sandy, Tyler, Jesse, Mason, Catherine, Kevin, Logan and Spencer. He will be missed. xo

C’est avec une grande tristesse que j’ai apprise le décès de votre mari. Il était un client très apprécié au salon de barbier. Sa bonne humeur et son sourire vont me manquer. Mes plus sincères condoléances à vous madame et ainsi qu’à vos enfants
