Obituary for Richard Couper
Richard Couper
Former Harbourmaster, Westport Harbour

It is with great sadness that the family of Richard (Rick) Gordon Couper, aged 66, announces his passing at the Perth District Hospital on June 21, 2018 after a courageous long-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Rick was born in Montreal, Quebec, to Richard (Dick) and Robina (Ruby) Couper and was the eldest of 4 children.

Rick will be remembered for his love of boating, of photography, and of finding great deals on really cool gadgets. A proud “Winter Texan”, Rick spent his winters in Rockport TX before his illness brought him home to Westport full-time. 

Rick will never be forgotten by his wife and best friend of 40 years, Cheryl (nee Gavigan), and his children Christopher (Michelle) and Danielle Leroux (Steve). Rick will always have a place in the hearts of his much-loved grandchildren Jack and Laura and Nick and Tyson. Rick will be remembered by his brothers John (Theresa), Ian (Leesa), and by his sister Susan (Glenn) as well as his Gavigan in-laws including Wayne (Glenna), Lloyd (Linda), the late Mark (Alice) and Carole (Shack). Rick will also be missed by many nieces and nephews, by his friends, and by anyone who shared his clever wit.

Rick helped beat the odds with the help of the wonderful staff at Country Roads Community Health Centre, the Kingston Cancer Centre, Westport Village Pharmacy and was able to die with dignity thanks to the compassionate staff of the Perth District Hospital. Thank-you to everyone who stood beside Rick in his fight.

Per Rick’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday July 8th from 1-4 at the Westport Legion.

OAP: Rick went by the name of RCouper and served as a volunteer admin with us for many years and was a regular uploader of photography.

Rick will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.  A wonderful man, full of life and passion for everything he loved.  He was a true pioneer in our hobby, well-respected and always a gentleman.

Farewell Rick, Rest in Peace.
