PARROTT, Richard George

It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved Dad, Papa, and friend Richard George Parrott, who passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 66. He will be missed and forever remembered by his children Christie (Rob), Candice (Leon), & Mark. He was the proudest Papa to Nicky, Abby, Isabelle, ET, Andrew, Nate & Roro. He loved being Papa more than anything in life. He also leaves to mourn his sisters Jody (Dode), Jackie (Pinky) (George), and brother Robb (Kelly). He was predeceased by his parents George & Natalie.

Dad had many passions in life including flying, watching sports, and fishing, but Papa loved nothing more than cheering on his grandkids in their sports. Rick (Skinny) was a cherished friend to many lifelong friends, which is such a testament to his character. He was often the life of the party; he always left something behind (travel mug, hat, keys) just so you remembered Rick was here. He was a hard worker, a bit of a dreamer that taught us that everything is possible through hard work. He was proud of his kids and we are so proud to call him Dad. His body was tired, his wit was sharp, and his love was fierce. Thank you Dad/Papa for loving us.

In lieu of Flowers – Tell a joke (dirtier the better), visit a friend, have a tea with a lot in honey in it, forgive someone and laugh, laugh harder than you thought was possible.

I always have fond memories of hanging out with Rick in the summer of ‘74 in Hay River. We had many good times at The Old Zoo! It was truly a memorable summer. RIP. Rick….


Richard was a good friend to me for many many years. Always threatened to kick me in the butt to get me motivated to go paint. “Oh C’mon,he’d say. I’ve been up since 5 and finished four jobs and you’re just waking up? Don’t make me come over there and kick you in the butt. Btw,I’m parked out front. Hurry up! Time is money. Lol. Typical banter from Richard. I learned a lot about painting,life,most of all how to sense sarcasm. He definitely had a gift for that. I am grateful to have known him. Grateful to call him my friend. He will be missed and never forgotten. Rest In Peace My Friend.

I have one memory of your dad that has stuck with me for years. We had him over for dinner one night and I made my passed down multiple generational families spaghetti and meat balls. Where the sauce simmers for hours you get the picture. Anyways after he has his plate loaded up he asks me for the ketchup. I swear my jaw hit the floor. Who puts ketchup on spaghetti? on my homemade spaghetti? Well he did and I believe Mark tried to make me feel better saying he just really like ketchup. Lol. I will always remember that.
