We Remember

DOEY, Richard “Kent”

February 7, 1949 — January 8, 2024

Born in South Porcupine, Ontario, on February 7, 1949, Richard Doey passed January 8, 2024, at the age of 74 in Kelowna, BC.

He was predeceased by his parents, Frank & Salme Doey; sister, Laila; and stepson, Kevin.  He is survived by his cherished wife of 31 years, Joyce (who passed shortly after on February 18, the same year); stepdaughter, Crystal (Shane), and stepgrandson, Kiefer.  His love for them is endless.  He also leaves his 9 sisters, Madlyn, Marion (Lorne), Kathrine (Chris), Vivian, Dale (Jim), Pennelope (Phil), Sarah, Rosemary (Dave), and Colleen (Grant). He will be eternally loved and missed by his nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and all who knew him.  Far too many to list.

His passing was in peace, with his Lord, after a long battle with health issues.

Rick was a man of many talents. Roofing on one day, rebuilding his classic motorcycle the next, or from selling cars (or insurance), to working on his writings and his “Book of Love”.  His poetry and stories are many, and drew others to understand true love.

“I know your Love, I hear your prayers, and send you mine.  This path I walk alone.”

A Celebration of Life, to remember Joyce & Rick Doey, will be held SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 2024, at 11:00 AM, at 1132 Findlay Road, Kelowna, BC.
