"FAK" 2006 Obituary


FAKIH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-03-01 published
CAVE, Richard " Dick," P.Eng. (August 29, 1943-February 26, 2006)
son of Frank and Hilda (née HOWE) CAVE
Peacefully, at La Farm in Duncan, Ontario and surrounded by his loving family and Friends, both at home and abroad, both with us and in heaven, our amazing husband, dad, guardian angel, grand-dad, uncle, cherished friend and valued colleague, passed graciously into a space filled with beauty, light, energy and peace for safekeeping, until we are all reunited. He leaves his adoring wife, Sally LEPPARD, partner of 18 years. By his side, throughout his 4 year battle with cancer, and for always, are his treasured and adored children - Emma (and Brian), Steve (and Kerry), Kate (and Kris,) Liz NIELD (née McHARDY, and Jim,) Louise (and Chris,) Jamie McHARDY, and his precious and beloved granddaughter, Sarah Grace. His sister Sue and husband Dave WHITEHEAD came from Cornwall, England to be by his side. He will always be loved by his special extended family - Sue CORKE, Jenny, Joel and Gabrielle HELMAN, Dave LEPPARD, Luce KENNEDY, Helen, Paul and Daniel RUSSELL, Jeremy and Amanda, Katie, Simon, Guy and Heidi, Miranda and Toby, Bob and Joan, Shylah and Austin, Sylvie, Bernhard and Baby Yannick, Mark, Barbara, Julian and Clee (and children), and beloved parents-in-law John and Jocey LEPPARD, and all of our children's dearest Friends ("the Urban Terrorists"). Dick's humour, wit, tall tales and strength of character will be sadly missed by his many great Friends. Throughout his last few weeks, you have helped us enormously with snow plowing, dishwashing, great food and wine, books, fine company, paintings, fun and laughter, and gifts of love and kindness too numerous to mention. Dick had a career full of achievements and 'firsts'. After emigrating from Derby, England as a Civil Engineer in 1969, he worked with Kilbourn Engineering until 1984 when he founded the Ontario-based R. Cave and Associates Engineering Inc. There he nurtured a tradition of creative, pragmatic and holistic engineering solutions to Canada's waste management and ecological problems. He finished his career with Trow Consulting in Brampton. Our family's grateful thanks go to those who cared for Dick in his last stage of life - the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, the Owen Sound Community Care Access Centre home care team and nurses Lorraine, Royanne, Sue and Laurie, and "spa lady" Sharon, Dr. and Mrs. Tony ROWLINSON, Joyce STRAITON, Dr. Jennifer KNOX and Bettina of Princess Margaret Hospital, and Dr. Marwan FAKIH of Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Your safety net was invaluable and gave us enormous hope over the last year and kindness and caring in the last few weeks. Dick is in our hearts, spirits, souls and minds, and his huge presence will be forever with us. "the candle burned out long before the legend ever did" -- E.J.A. memorial to Dick will be held at Bethany Church of the Nazarene, Trowbridge Street West in Meaford, Ontario on Monday, March 6, 2006 at 1: 30 p.m. As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Georgian Triangle Hospice would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford N4L 1B9 (519-538-1320) to whom arrangements have been entrusted.
