It is time to join family and friends to celebrate the life and fond memories of the late Richard (Rick) Gallant. At 61 years young, Rick ended his five-year cancer journey on March 13, 2019 at Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital in Stephenville. He passed peacefully and comfortably, and was surrounded by family and those who loved him dearly. He is predeceased by his Father Eloid. He leaves in his passing his mother Nina, his wife and partner Joan Gabriel, his daughter Cassondra (Cody), his son Daniel (Samantha). Additional thanks to his brother Lloyd (Vicki) for their constant daily support through his hospitalization. Thanks also to his sisters Claudia (Randy) and Laverne (Hunter), who were a phone call or plane ride away when needed, and provided continuous support from the beginning to the end. Special thanks to Aunt Julia (Moore) for just being you. Special thanks to his best friend J.V (Joe) White and Wendy White for always being there for him and for the family. Rick will be remembered forever as a kind soul with a big heart. His smile was infectious and he was always willing to show it to those who treated him kind. He was an incredibly talented Jack-of-All trades. He used those skills continuously throughout his life to help build homes for his family and contribute to a business which provided for his children.
