City and Community Mourns Loss of Councillor Rick Johnson

City and Community Mourns Loss of Councillor Rick Johnson

Pickering, ON, September 28, 2016 – We are deeply saddened at the loss of our friend and colleague Councillor Rick Johnson. 

Councillor Johnson was a dedicated and passionate advocate for Pickering and represented Ward 3 tirelessly for over two decades.  In that span, he worked diligently on behalf of Pickering as both a politician and as a community leader.

Councillor Johnson has held a number of respected roles over the years, including Deputy Mayor, Durham Region Public Works Chairman, Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority Chairman, Veridian Energy Corporation Director, Durham Non-Profit Housing Director, Durham Region Master Transportation Plan Chairman, and Member of GTA Regional Public Works Chairs Committee.  He served as a Local Councillor from 1988 to 1991, Regional Councillor from 1991 to 2010, and returned to the City in 2014 to serve as a City Councillor.

Councillor Johnson had a down-to-earth style that won him many friends and supporters. His influence went beyond Pickering and can be felt across Durham Region. Expressions of condolence are flooding into City Hall from those who have been touched by Councillor Johnson’s compassion and generosity.  For those of you who wish to offer condolences to his family, an online form is available on the City website and a book of condolence is available at City Hall.

Details regarding funeral and visitation arrangements are forthcoming and will be shared on the City website.  Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to Rick’s wife Susan, his son Chris, the rest of his family and many friends and supporters. 

He will be missed.

The following arrangements have been confirmed:

Visitation at McEachnie Funeral Home on Friday from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.

There will be additional visitation at the Dr. Nelson F. Tomlinson Community Centre on Saturday, at 12 pm, followed by the Service at 1:30 pm.
