In loving memory of
Mr. Richard W. Deforge
June 15, 1954 – July 21, 2020
It is with a heavy heart that the family announces the passing of Richard (Rick) Deforge. Richard’s relentless battle with Cancer ended on July 21, 2020 at the Smooth Rock Falls Hospital. His tireless devotion and sacrifice to care for his family weighs heavily in his absence but leaves behind lasting and treasured memories for all those he has left behind. His family finds comfort in his unconditional love and support as well as his quirky and eccentric ways. Known by many others for pioneering professional skin art in his hometown, his memory will live on the skin of thousands for many years to come. No matter the connection, his legacy will live on and outlast. He was the son of the late Bud Deforge and Theresa Deforge (nee Bertrand). He will be deeply missed by his loving wife Sandra Deforge (nee Kiernan), his children William (Lindsay) and Becky Sue (Caroline), his grandchildren Ivey-Lea, Kaleb and Jacob, many other relatives and friends.
