Obituary
With heavy hearts, the Seitz family announces Richard’s passing on December 25 at his home in West Kelowna with his wife and love of his life, Darlene, and sons Ryan (Mark) by his side. Rich is also survived by his daughter Jan. He was predeceased by his parents George and Catherine and daughter Jacqueline Lee.
Rich was born in Regina, an only child on Mother’s Day. He got involved in sports early and he excelled in any sport he tried. He led the Regina Rams to win the Junior Grey Cup the same year the Roughriders won their Grey Cup and with the same score. He played hockey with the Regina Pats, the Impalas softball team, and more. He held hockey schools at no cost to families, coached girls ringette for numerous years, and also the University of Regina Cougars hockey team.
Rich had to forgo joining the World Hockey Association as he was attending Saskatchewan Roughriders camp, coaching hockey in Italy, and because of his daughter Jackie’s illness.
Rich and Dar involved themselves with the Muscular Dystrophy community where he was on the board to represent the firefighters while his wife was aide to MD Kids Fund raising their friendship.
Retiring as a senior captain from a job he loved at the Regina Fire Department was tough but made easier when he found a home at Shuswap Lake Estates Golf Community in Blind Bay, BC. There he and Dar got to kayak, and they had a great trip paddling the Broken Islands. Along came golf on a championship course all around them, and ball and hockey time too.
Alberta called and for two years, Rick and Dar lived in Medicine Hat where again, Rick found hockey being played, and the best ball league he ever played with which took him to tournaments in Utah twice.
BC was calling back and they had to respond. Living on the Two Eagles Golf Course was wonderful and hockey was a fun experience with great teammates.
Thanks go to his huge health team of Drs. Bains, Moore, LeFevre, Dielwart, Weisenthal, Ramsay, Mostowy, Elamin, and McLeod. Thanks dear nurse Ann Keane who brought her sunshine to our home as well as Julie, Kim, Lisa, Marie, and their team.
Remember Rich by his constant helpfulness, by his kind and calm way, and by his smile. A man of talent with no ego is a rare find. He will live forever in the hearts of those who loved him. A celebration of his life will be held in the spring.

  1. Darlene, Jan, Ryan we are so very sorry to learn that Rick has passed on. We remember many fun times with Stingers Ringette team and the many trips, meals and fundraisers shared by the families. Rick was a wonderful caring coach, mentoring his players on and off the ice. He was caring and compassionate. He is likely busy in heaven organizing sports with those who have gone before him. Rest in peace dear friend.

  2. Our condolences to the family. Rick was a great leader and team mate. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

  4. Darlene, Jan & Ryan. We are so sorry to hear of Richard’s passing. He truly was a great guy- his caring ways, his smile- we loved his visits to the farm. He will be missed.
    With deepest sympathy, Clayton & Lorrie Kessler.

  5. Dear Darlene, I am so very sorry for your loss. My words will never convey to you my sympathy. Even though it was so many years ago that we worked together, your face lit up like a young school girl when talking about Rich. You are in my thoughts and prayers….

  6. Darlene & Family – So sorry to learn of Rick’s passing. He was a good friend and many years ago an opponent on the football field. I enjoyed our conversations at The Ringette
    Nationals back in the 1980’s, and the lunches we had when Rick & Darlene travelled to
    Winnipeg. Sorry to be late with this, but I only learned of Rick’s passing August 7.2022.
