Passing of Richard Wojcik

On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, we lost our mentor, Richard Wojcik.  He passed away suddenly at the Grace Hospital at the age of 49 years.  Richard was a loving father, brother, son, uncle and friend to many.  Needless to say, his passing has been devastating for his family and the staff of Wojcik’s Funeral Chapels & Crematoriums.

We want to reassure the communities that we serve that Wojcik’s Funeral Chapels & Crematoriums is indeed open for business and that you can count on us in your time of need.  Your family will continue to be cared for by a licensed funeral director as we move forward without Richard.

The vision that Richard had when he established the business in 1998 has been instilled in all of us, and we will continue to maintain his high standards when serving your family.  Richard developed many systems and policies over the years that will assist us as we carry on his tradition of providing the highest quality of service possible.  You will continue to be treated as family by our staff as we provide good old fashioned and personalized funeral services.  Our goal will be to honour his memory by carrying on with his vision.

We have had a few inquiries regarding prearranged funeral contracts, specifically if these plans are “safe”.  We want to reassure everyone that has such a plan with Wojcik’s Funeral Chapels & Crematoriums that these plans are indeed safe and will be honoured in your time of need.  If you have more questions, please feel free to call us at any time.

We would like to thank our family, friends and the community as a whole from the bottom of our hearts for the kindness, support and compassion we have been shown.  The prayers that so many have offered have meant so much to us.  The many phone calls, emails, personal visits and floral arrangements are greatly appreciated. We are thankful that so many of our friends in funeral service have offered help.

We would also like to thank those that responded to Richard’s emergency, and to the skilled and caring staff of the Grace Hospital ER and ICU.  Words alone cannot express the gratitude we feel for the care you provided as you fought to save his life.

Thank you all for your continued support.  It has been the source of strength for us as we move ahead.


The Wojcik family and the staff of Wojcik’s Funeral Chapels & Crematorium
