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.
