HARDS: Richard Lewis (Rick)
April 26, 1967 – August 6, 2019
The death of Rick Hards, aged 52 years, of Nokomis, SK occurred at Central Parkland Lodge, Lanigan, SK on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 after a courageous two year battle with cancer. Rick loved life, his family, the farm and the old west. Rick was born in Nokomis, Saskatchewan at Nokomis Hospital and attended Nokomis Elementary and High School graduating in 1985. He then went on to obtain his Vocational Agriculture diploma at University of Saskatchewan. While attending University Rick met and fell in love with Rhonda. Rick returned home to farm with his dad full time in May of 1988. In July of 1989, Rick and Rhonda were married and settled into their life carrying on the family farm and raising two beautiful children. They recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Rick loved his community of Nokomis, and was very involved in many activities such as the Nokomis Agricultural Society and Nokomis Scouting Association. Rick always was willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. His true passions were family, his farm (especially the cattle), and the old west, Mexico, tequila and mariachi bands. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and all that came to know him. Heaven gained another sweet angel. Rick will be forever remembered by his loving wife Rhonda; son, Jordan; daughter, Ashley; his mother, Joyce; brother, David (Teresa); sister, Beverly (Reg) Halpenny; sister Nancy; nieces, nephews, cousins and their families. Rick is also survived by Rhonda's parents, Gerry and Ruth Cooney and sister, Karen (Greg) Fisher. He was predeceased his father, Raymond in 2015. A Memorial Service will be held in the Nokomis Centennial Hall, Nokomis, SK on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Jack Robson officiating. Private Family Interment in Nokomis Cemetery. For online condolences, tributes or memorial donations to Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, in lieu of flowers, please visit

It is very sad news that we have lost Rick. My heartfelt condolences go out to Rhonda and the entire family. It seems like yesterday that “Hopper” was rallying all of us to play a game of 500 during lunch hour.

My fondest memories of Rick were his funny sense of humour and absolute love of all things sports (especially his beloved Rough Riders). He was a great athlete in his own right, especially his high jump capabilities.

We spent many hours together, just the two of us, playing football. Rick always wanted to practice the stretch-pass….”come on Code, make me dive for it!”.

One vivid memory of Rick was from grade 10 (I think). During social studies, we learned about the Battle of Tippecanoe. That night, while playing around with the football, Rick decided I was “Tippecanoe” and he was “Tecumseh”. As I stepped back to pass to him, he bellowed as loud as he could….”Tippecanoe to Tecumseh….for a 30 yard touchdown to win the game!!!!”. We fell to the ground laughing so hard, we could not even speak. That was my friend Rick.
