A LA DOUCE MÉMOIRE DE Richard Emile Atwill

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Emile Atwill. Rick passed away suddenly and peacefully on January 30, 2024.

Rick was born in Ottawa on April 5, 1942. Predeceased by his parents Richard and Marguerite Atwill. He will be affectionately missed by his loving wife Ellen of 55 years, son Derek (Wendy), granddaughter Andie, daughter Sharon McLeod and granddaughters Tanya and Kari. He will also be greatly missed by his sister Sherline Hancock (Barry), brother Steve Atwill (Dianne), brother in-law Ron Yuill (Danielle), and cousins Ronnie and Jimmy Atwill, as well by many other cousins, nieces, nephews, numerous friends, and extended family at Atwill Service Centre.

Rick was at his happiest when surrounded by family and friends. He was an entrepreneur, a proud family man with a passion for motorsports and hockey, and known as a well respected member of the Ottawa community.

The family will receive relatives and friends at Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Rd., Orléans, on Saturday February 24, 2024 from 11am to 1pm. Funeral service will be held in the Heritage Chapel at 1pm, followed by a reception.

My sincere condolences to you Ellen and your family. May your memories of a life well lived comfort you in your time of grief. Know that you have many friends that love and support you.

Derek, My deepest condolences to you and your family. Sending you all lots of love and strength during this difficult time on behalf of the family of your old bud Bruce.

Such a shock!! Clary and Rick are happily racing their cars around heaven just like they did 60 years ago. Carrie and I miss them both very much. Condolences to Ellen, Derek, Wendy and Andie. XOXO

Very sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my husband last Feb. It is good to have family and good friends at times like this. People say are you alone and I say no, I have the 2 dogs with me and they are good company. .

Dear Derek,
I was saddened to hear about your Dad’s sudden passing. My sincere sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time. May the wonderful memories of your Dad forever keep him close.
RIP Rick. 🙏🙏🙏
Thinking of you all.

Dear Ellen and family,
Wherever a beautiful soul has been,
There is a trail of beautiful memories !
So very sorry for your loss, Sue Dolan

My sincerest condolences to Ellen amd extended family,
I used to drive an old clunker wirh a gas gauge that didn’t work. My son,s babysitter lived in beacon hill and twice one week I ram out of gas. I walked to Rick.s gas station and he teased me amd we both laughed about it.
Rick,s sister sherlime is an old friend of mine.
Unfortunately I cant make the service because of a previous apt.
My thoughts are with you at this sad time.

Ellen and family. Our deepest condolences on the passing of Rick. May the memories of him be a blessing for you and your family. He was a real good guy and will be missed.

What a loss. A big loss to the family, to his staff, and to the community as well. And it’s not just one community – a presence like Rick Atwill had will be felt in more than one community in the Ottawa area alone. I was never a personal friend of Rick’s, but he always made me feel like I was every time I was there, not just once-in-awhile. These are big shoes to fill, but I think they have already been filled. I wish the entire family some peace at this time.

Dear Ellen and Derek, I heard the sad news on the weekend and I just want you to know that Kim and I are thinking about you, Rick was a great guy and I’ve had lots of good times with the Atwills over the years. I always enjoyed his honesty, generosity and sense of humour.
We will miss him.
See you on the 24th.
Best wishes
Kim and Al
