Obituary

Richard F. Walcer, aged 76, passed away peacefully on January 6th, 2020 at Melfort Hospital surrounded by family. He was born in Melfort SK to Casmir and Mary (Falkoski) Walcer.

Growing up on the family farm, he attended nearby Mount Forest School, Kinistino Composite High School and then left for the University of Saskatchewan. After studying there, he longed to return to the farm. Richard spent his life farming, specializing in select seed production and sales, while sharing his wealth of agricultural knowledge across western Canada. For many decades, he was a hail insurance broker. A gifted man, he was skilled in many trades. He was passionate about nature, fishing, picking wild berries, hazelnuts and mushrooms.

In recent years, nothing made him happier than yard saling and pawn shopping. He enjoyed imparting his corny humour and daily weather forecast on friends and family. He found pleasure in winter trips to warmer destinations. After moving into Melfort, from the farm, he became an active member of the Melfort and District Senior Citizens Club.

Richard will be missed, but remembered as a gentle, sincere, trustworthy and generous man.

Richard is survived by: his mother, Mary; his children: Larry (Nicole), Anita and Murray; his grandchildren: Steven, Jason, Trevor and Madison; sisters: Marina and Leona (Ivan); nephews: Garth (Brigitte), Paul (Selena) and Dennis and niece, Nicola.

He was predeceased by his father, Casmir (2013) and grandson, Luke (2001).

Richard will be privately interred in the columbarium at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Melfort, SK.

We invite you to join us in honouring a good farmer, by wearing a plaid shirt and ball cap.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in Richard's name to the Saskatchewan Cancer Foundation or Saskatchewan Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Richard was foundational for us in our years of seed production. He was a man of great integrity. one of his saying I recall was “a job worth do is worth doing well”
another was “a plain born in a hurry is born blind”.
Surely will miss his

gentle advice.

I met Richard and Marina in Mexico one year ago. We shared some stories and had a wonderful visit. Canada has lost a true gentleman. I glad I got to spend a little time with him. Rest in peace Richard. I know you will be missed.

Sorry to hear of his passing. Purchased forage seed from him over the years. He also gave us a couple varieties of seed potatoes many years ago and just in the last coupe of years we exchanged back as he had lost his. He sorted out the two kinds for us and gave us back what we refer to as the "Walcer " potatoes last spring. Heirloom ones he said had been in the family for years.
