Richard "Ricky" Allen Edgett
Richard "Ricky" Allen Edgett, 62, of Alma passed away unexpectedly on February 26th, 2018 at his home.
Ricky was born in Moncton on October 28th, 1955 the son of the late Ernest and Elsie (Burnett) Edgett.
He worked at Fundy National Park for over 38 years and was the Head Gardener and Supervisor when he retired. Ricky loved driving in the country and around Alma just checking on everybody to see how things were going. He had a regular route he travelled morning, noon and night to make sure everything was okay in the community. He had a great sense of humour and was known for his easy going personality " That's good enough" was one of his favourite sayings. He also loved being in nature and hunting. He was a real Albert County boy who liked the simple things in life. He had a special place in his heart for his family and especially his little grandchildren. They were Grampy's boys and he cherished the times they spent face timing, getting to watch them grow even though they were in Alberta. He had just talked with them on Sunday night. May the good memories carry you through this time and he would want everyone to share a funny story and have a laugh in his memory. "Fond memories cling."
He will be deeply missed by his wife and best friend, Brenda Hambly of Alma; daughter, Amanda Edgett of St. John's, NFLD; son Adam Edgett (Suzette) of Red Deer, AB; step-son, Tanar Mitton (Jeneen) of Kamloops, BC; his precious twin grandsons, Alexander Richard Edgett and Nicholas Arthur Edgett; treasured step-grandchildren, Alanna Marie Mitton and Connor James Mitton; sisters, Bonnie Eastwick of Riverview, Joanne Beck (Carl) of Shepody, Kathy Bishop (David) of Riverside-Albert; brothers, Peter Edgett (Lana) of Alma, Melvin Edgett (Louise) of Hillsborough and John Edgett of West River. He will also be missed by several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents he was predeceased by his sister Diana Lutes (Jim).
