Rickey died peacefully at the North Bay Regional Health Center on Friday January 29, 2021, at the age of 65 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy Anderson, his children Christian (Candice), Melinda, and Chad (Andrea), and his grandchildren Zoe, Hayley, Brayden, Chloe, Kylie and Tarrah. Also survived by his brother Gary (Annie) and sister Cathy (Ken). He was predeceased by his parents Bill and Margaret Cunnington, his brother Greg (Fran) and his beloved grandson Nathaniel. Rickey was a life-long artist with many local showings, particularly with the Alex Dufresne Gallery. He worked for many years at the Salvation Army and enjoyed helping the community. In keeping with his wishes his body will be cremated and his ashes will be interred in St. John’s Anglican Cemetery. Rickey’s wish was that, if desired, donations to One Kids Place, in memory of Nathaniel, will be gratefully acknowledged as expressions of sympathy. Arrangements entrusted to Martyn Funeral Home.
