Rick you were wonderful neighbour you are very sweet and very kind you will be missed prayers to the family at this hard time

To the Blagdon family (hi Debbie), I am so very sorry for your loss. I had known Rick in passing only in school and got to know him much better through his playing pool as adults. Ive not seen Rick in many years however, and I’m shocked and saddened! Not many folks these days make an impression like Rick… a memorable smile, a zealous friendliness, and oh so intriguingly smart!!! I will remember him this way forever. Thinking of you all during this so very difficult time.

It’s funny how we lose track of time. Seems like only yesterday we were talking about our next big game , or cruising the halls like we owned PWC … and now here I am saying goodbye.

I haven’t seen you in years, but I still remember you, and in fact, in a twist of irony, was talking about you the other day ….25 years later … and saying only good things.

My sincere condolences to the family, even if they don’t remember me, I definitely remember “Ricketts the Rocket Blagdon” and all the good times

Rest In Peace my friend

Words cannot express how saddened I was to here of Rick’s passing, my deepest condolences to you and your family.

So sorry to hear about your loss. Rick tried to teach me how to master the bank shot many years ago. As terrible as I was he still kept trying. Havent seen him in years but had asked others about him recently. RIP Rick…

Deepest sympathy and condolences to you and yours on Rick‘s passing ! I knew Rick many years ago and have always considered him a friend. He was a good guy with a big heart . He was the best pool player I’ve ever known and we had a lot of good times years back. He was a sharp intelligent guy complemented by a great sense of humour. It Brings me great sadness to hear of his passing! Even though I haven’t seen him in 12 years as I live in Alberta, at this moment I can picture him sink that 8 ball and laugh just like it were yesterday .

So sorry to hear the bad news. Our prayers and thoughts are with you Chris, and the whole family at the very difficult time.

To the entire Blagdon family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I’d known Rick for a number of years and he was always a pleasure to be around. Quick with a joke or a smile, he brightened the room every time and never a harsh word to be heard about him. My deepest condolences.

To Chris, Kim, and all of the Blagdon family… thinking of you all as you have to endure one of the most difficult things you’ll ever go through. I’ll never forget our “just a few days” which turned into a month or two visit from Rick. Lol. He always made Kim and I laugh, even if we were super mad at him for eating the last gingersnap! Haha And Chris, he had so much love and admiration for you! My heart is with you all ❤️

Debbie and all of Rick’s family we offer deepest sympathy at this difficult time. Remember the good times you all shared as it will help get you through the difficult days ahead. R.I.P. Rick

Rick lived one floor below me. He was quiet, respectful, friendly, and honest. Each time we dropped something or made a disturbing noise, we muttered “Sorry, Rick.” I imagine we’ll be saying that for a while still. So sorry for your loss.
