Royal Joseph Jean-Marie Ricard

January 6, 1952 ~ July 2, 2021

It is with sadness that the family of Royal Joseph Jean-Marie Ricard announce his passing on July 2, 2021, in Whitehorse, Yukon.

Royal was born in Limbour, Quebec, on January 6, 1952, to Henri Ricard and Rhéa LaFontaine. He was one of four children: his brothers, Bernard, Jean-guy and his sister Rollande.

He was a man of many trades, working as a mechanic, security guard, and industrial worker. Roy loved to fish and hunt. But, he loved nothing more than to give a helping hand wherever needed.

Left behind to mourn this loss include his son, Danny Ricard (Amanda Ellacott); grandchildren Guillaume, Benoit, Hannah, Bailey, and Austin.

Royal is pre-deceased by his sons Donald and Royal Junior.

Donations in Royal’s memory can be made to the Yukon Hospital Foundation

    C’est avec beaucoup de tristesse que j’ai appris le décès de mon cousin Royal. Que de beaux souvenirs de lui de rencontres et sorties avec notre cousine Ginette et aussi de la musique surtout dans le temps des fêtes comme adolescents, nous sommes du même âge, une semaine sépare nos naissances. Mes plus sincères condoléances à sa famille. Je me souviendrai toujours de lui avec tendresse.
