HUMPHREYS, Richard “Rick”

RICHARD “RICK” HUMPHREYS 1959-2023 The family of Richard “Rick” Wayne Humphreys is saddened to announce his passing on December 2, 2023, in Cardston, Alberta, at the age of 64 years.
Rick was born to Dick and Eva Mae (Milner) Humphreys on June 13, 1959, in Edmonton and grew up in Lethbridge. After serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sapporo Japan, he attended Lethbridge Community College. He worked for 15 years for the City of Lethbridge and earned his Bachelor of Management from the U of L while working full-time for the city. He then spent several years consulting in the U.S., until he eventually found the perfect job in Magrath. He loved work and took pride doing a job well, but his greatest joy came from his family and from serving others. He loved camping trips with his kids, hiking with his friends, and making up a good joke. He liked to perform, enjoyed theatre and singing with his family, and was an accomplished drummer. He served for many years on the SASH board and loved interacting with the clients. A ten-minute errand to the grocery store often turned into a three-hour journey as he shoveled sidewalks, helped people move, or just stopped to see how someone was doing. He looked for and found a friend in everyone he met.
He is survived by his wife, Stephanie (Thomson) Humphreys; three children – David (Fallon) Stokell, Christin (Thane) Werner, and Jared Stokell; three step-children – Malissa (Weston) Wilson, Clayton Goodsell, and Emma (Kinson) Jenkins; and 12 grandchildren; his mother, Eva Mae Humphreys; brothers – Ken (Carla), Doug (Roberta), Bruce (Barb); sisters – Barbara (Rod) Merrill, and Sheila (Cal) Hatch; and many nieces, nephews, and other extended family. He was predeceased by his father, Dick Humphreys, and sister-in-law Christy Humphreys.
A Funeral service will be held December 16, 2023 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Garden Place Chapel (170 Centre St N, Magrath, Alberta). The service will begin at 11:00AM with friends meet family from 10:00AM to 10:45AM. To view the live streamed service, please visit Rick’s obituary prior to the service at http://www.salmonandsons.ca

Walter entered this world at the Galt Hospital in Lethbridge and spent his first few years on the family farm. In 1948 the family loaded all their possessions on the train and the journey to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia began. Many stories were told of Walt’s years growing up in Burnaby, none more important than his love of the BC Lions and attending their home games at Empire Stadium. In 1958 he joined the Canadian Army, 8th Canadian Hussars, serving Canada at home and overseas until 1966. At that time, he returned to the west coast where he worked numerous jobs, journeying back to Lethbridge in the early 1970s. For several years, Walter owned his own business, and in 1979 joined the Alberta Corrections Service. He was a dedicated officer and an active member of the AUPE until his retirement in 2003. Walter was also a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion, General Stewart Branch No 4 here in Lethbridge for 50 years.
In retirement, Walter spent many hours puttering in his shop or camping and fishing in the Boundary Creek and Police Lake area of Southwest Alberta. He also spent time on the patio creating tasty treats in his smoker or on his barbeque.
Walter is survived by his daughter Darlene (Gus) Watt; stepsons Tony (Joyce) Farough; Chuck (Heather) Farough; and his grandchildren Ethan Frisse, Alex, Kate, Raelynn and Aubrey Farough.
He is also survived by his sister Diane (Greg) Dyble; niece Christie (Rob) Wall and their children Zach and Annika; his nephew Jaron (Meriya) Dyble and their children Raena and Emryn; as well as numerous family members throughout BC and the Prairie Provinces.
Besides his wife Lorri, Walter was predeceased by his parents Alex and Phyllis Watt and his brother, Ken.
A gathering for family and friends to remember Walter and say their final good-byes will be held in the new year. Arrangements to be announced when completed. Cremation has been entrusted to Martin Brothers Funeral Chapels.
