Richard “Rick” Sowery passed peacefully surrounded by family at the age of 57 after a short battle with cancer. He was born in Magdalen Islands, Quebec, but called Leduc his home. Rick had a very strong work ethic, and he took pride in his work as a welder for Westech Vac Systems for the past 19 years. He was a kind and selfless man who went above and beyond for those he loved.
Rick was predeceased by his father Robert and his step-mother Yvonne. He will be remembered by his wife Rebecca Geiger-Sowery, his mother Dot and step-father Ron, his brother Rob and Rob’s wife Lisa. He also leaves behind his children Bill (Cynthia), Kate (Dustin), Chantal and Carly, his step-daughters Anna (Walter) and Scotia (Ty), his grandchildren Julia, Ayden, Alysa, Chloe and Rowan, as well as his niece Iesha and great-nephew R.J. He will be missed by many family and friends as he touched the lives of many, and we are heartbroken to have lost you so soon.
The family would like to thank oncologist Dr. Julie Price-Hiller at the Cross Cancer Institute, and the nurses and doctors of the U of A Hospital Unit 5E4 for their exceptional care.
“Sleep, baby, sleep. We will love you forever.”
