Rick-John George Sampson

November 18, 1985August 17, 2020

It is with great sadness we announce the unexpected passing of Rick-John (Ricky) Sampson at his home on August 17th, 2020 at the age of 34. Rick is loved and will be missed everyday by his Father Richard, Mother Doris and Sister Stephanie (Steve). Ricky was a caring uncle to Sophia and Simon. Grandson of (late) Donald and Doreen Wilson and (late) Felix and (late) Lillian Sampson. He was adored by his Poppy, (late) Howard Bevan. Rick will be remembered by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He will be missed for his great sense of humour and kind heart. He will be fondly remembered by his loyalty to others, bravery and ability to make friends easily and his love for sports. We know Rick is now resting peacefully and taken care of by God, whom he held close to his heart. As per the family’s wishes, a private ceremony will take place to honour Rick. Arrangements entrusted to COURTICE FUNERAL CHAPEL, 1587 Highway #2, Courtice, (905-432-8484).

To Ricky and Doris,
We recently sat together and reminisced.
We spoke about life.
We spoke of our downfalls, our accomplishments and of course, our children.
I was unable to bear children of my own however, blessed with being a "step-mom".
Life can be unpredictable, which many unknown mountains to overcome.
You both are strong, together you appear unbeatable.
You have had your trials and tribulations.....but you have remained side by side, through thick and thin.
You each have someone there to lean on and to keep you moving forward.
Together, you and Ricky will mourn the loss of Little Ricky.
When your fondest memories come crashing through, remember to smile and take a deep breath, that's "your baby" sending you a message.
Always remember, positivity wins the day. Condolences, from our house to yours.
Love Tammy Slattery,
Ron Wood and
Gage Sterling

My dear friends,

The depth of your love for your children has always been evident to anyone who knows you. Together, you have faced many trials and tribulations, and it is together that you managed to get through them. Right now, that strength that you bring to each other has never been more important as you deal with this heartbreaking loss. You have always been one of the strongest couples I have the pleasure of calling friends. May the love and support of family and friends bring you some comfort and assist you both in remaining strong for each other.

My love and heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

Dear Rick and Doris,
I can truly feel the world crashing around you. We talked talked often about your «little Ricky ». He kept you on your toes but you loved him no matter what. I’m sorry you have to go through this pain. Ricky is in Heaven now and you need to believe and persevere through this nightmare on earth. You will reunite with him again. Eternity is our gift from God. Hope.
In my prayers, Alison
