It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Richard Blewaska on the 19th of March 2015 in Hamilton NZ. He was born in Calgary on January 27th,1962. He was predeceased by his father, Stefan Blewaska and his mother, Maria Blewaska of Fairmont BC. He will be loved and remembered by his brothers Edmund and Gary Blewaska, his sister Marianne Tucker, his nieces Erin Dowset, Patricia Tanner, Stacie MacNeil, Jennifer Mireau, Katie Flury and his faithful travelling companion Lil Skid. He made friends everywhere he went. He touched the hearts and souls of people and there were many life long friendships that he developed all over the world through his work and travels. Many of these friends were like his second family. He had a passion for travel and cycling. He died doing what he loved most in a country that was like a second home to him. He will be deeply missed by all. “Gosh dang, Richie, we will always love ewe and your legacy will live on!” More information regarding a celebration of life will be posted on his Facebook Page in the upcoming weeks.
