PRYCHUN It is with great sadness that we say farewell to Richard Allen Prychun. Ric was tragically taken from us February 16, 2007 at the young age of 55. Ric was born in Selkirk, Manitoba, March 28, 1951. He remained in Manitoba until 1978 when he moved to Alberta with his family. He lived in many areas of Alberta including Wardlow, Sylvan Lake, Blackfalds and finally called Bowden his home. On his travels through Western Canada, he gained many friends through work and life. Ric had many occupations including operating cranes, driving trucks and drilling water wells. For the last twelve years he was a multifaceted employee with Inland Concrete in Olds, Alberta.
