Richard BEHNKE

Richard Leonard Behnke

Passed away suddenly at home June 19th, 2012.

Predeceased by his father, Walter and mother, Edith Behnke.

He is survived by his wife Lynn(Johansen) Behnke, daughters Karin, Debra and Cheryl; their husbands, eight grandchildren, brother Bob (Dianne), nephews, nieces and many other family and friends.

Rick was a practical, unassuming and hard working man who found his greatest joy in his family. He was retired two years from his career as a Marine Engineer with BC Ferries where he had many friends. Whether working in the yard with his little dog at his side or tinkering in his shop, he was always ready to respond to a request for help from family, friends and neighbours. He touched the lives of so many who are richer for having known him. Service to be announced at a later date.
