Richard Robert Gordon Chaplin

CHAPLIN, Richard Robert Gordon - January 12, 1959-September 13, 2017 Dear Rick, There must have been a very good reason for your unexpected passing. Perhaps it was because you had fulfilled your life’s purpose, you had mastered ‘devotion’ as loving son, brother and friend, you honoured your family, you spoke your truth, you found peace. Perhaps it was because you had learned what you were meant to learn. It may not be for us to know ‘Why?; perhaps it’s enough to know your memory is heartfelt. Thank you for being such a beautiful person. Thank you for giving us a legacy of laughter, compassion, love, courage, calm, and cuisine. Dear son of Janet Chaplin Young and the late James Dhu Chaplin. Beloved brother of Elizabeth Chaplin (Gord McCulloch), Jan Chaplin (Jean Rablat) and Diana Chaplin Leitl. Beloved uncle of Hinson, Wilks and Brechin Chaplin; Alex and Garnet Shuker; Sophia Leitl. He was a graduate of Ridley College and Bath University; a former director of the Chaplin Family YMCA, and dedicated his life to the service of his family, friends and motto: Orna Verum. We love you, Rick. Now and forever. The Chaplin family invites Rick’s friends to a service at Trinity Anglican Church in Galt, Cambridge Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 2 p.m. followed by a reception at Langdon Hall at 4 p.m. For those planning to attend or to send condolences, please email elizabeth@wrec.com13211926
