OBITUARY

Richard "Rick" Dawson Heyworth

May 6, 1936March 19, 2020

On March 19, 2020 just the way Dad would have wanted, he was surrounded by his family when he passed away at Brampton Civic in his 84th year. Always a loving and dedicated husband and Dad. No one ever questioned Rick’s love for family, or his work ethic. He is the beloved husband of Sheila (nee McKnight) for over 59 years. Dear Dad of Greg (Darlene), Robb (Kathie), Julie Weare, Carolyn (Andy)Truax. Proud Grandpa Rick to Robert (Brittany), Patrick (Sarah), Amanda (Mike), Katie, Dawson, Jamie (Mark), Kyle, Connor & Garrett. Great Grandpa to Colton, Isabella and Skylar. Predeceased by his 7 brothers and 2 sisters. Rick was a popular figure in his Bramalea neighbourhood and amongst his Highland Pines Neighbours, often being called “Neighbourhood Watch” or “The Mayor”, who was always happy to stop and chat with the neighbours. He was passionate, an animal lover and unapologetically unabashed in matters he truly believed in. He had an excellent sense of humour and infectious laugh often pulling pranks and telling jokes, he will be truly missed but never forgotten. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation or The Brampton Humane Society.

Our deepest condolences to the entire Heyworth family.
Julie, I’ve always thought you were so very much like your Dad; quick wit, funny and that fantastic sarcastic humour you both shared. I’m glad to have met him and it was easy to see the love and respect he had for his family.
During this difficult time, may you all find comfort in the sympathy expressed by your caring family & friends. Xoxo
RIP Mr Heyworth ❤️

Sincerely
Cheryl & Tim

First, I want to express my deepest condolences to the entire Heyworth family.
I grew up with Rob from middle school to high school, and spent a lot of time at the Heyworth pool in 1978 onward. I remember how funny Mr. Heyworth was & always razzing Robb & Greg.
Many years have past, and time has moved on. Although I haven’t seen the Heyworths in years, I have such vivid & fond memories.
I remember Mr. Heyworth driving Robb & I Home from our Grade 8 graduation. He was just so great. God Bless and RIP Mr. Heyworth Xxoo - Val Hay (MacKenzie)

How many memories can I share about a man I considered a second dad for many years throughout my youth, teens and early adult years?
Full of life and laughter. I rarely saw this man not smiling or making someone smile. He was kind, he was supportive and he was a fantastic father.
“Carolyn! Close the gate and don’t be late!”
“Hedley! You staying here again?!”
I loved being at The Heyworth house. It is and always will be the best part of my younger days.
I know the gut wrenching pain must be unbearable. But, Richard/Dad, is not far away. Love doesn’t die. Please keep talking to him; he can hear you. He can see you. He is still Richard/Dad.

Sending all my heart felt love and sympathies to all of you. I love you all and miss you Mr Heyworth.
