RUTTER, Richard Arthur - Passed away, after a courageous struggle with illness, with family by his side, on Tuesday, July 11th, 2017, Richard Arthur Rutter, a resident of Edison Drive, Vienna, at the age of 62. Rick was a dedicated tractor trailer transport driver with Polaris Transport, Toronto. Rick was the ultimate "Mr. Fix-It" who had amazing knowledge and skills in many vastly different areas of endeavour. Mechanically-inclined, he quite literally could fix anything. A man of all trades: electrical, roofer, mechanic. Rick loved fishing, hunting, the outdoors, classic cars, trucks, mud trucks, demolition derbies, and transport truck pulls. He loved people and was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. He will be missed by many. Much loved husband and best friend of Wendy (Berwick) Rutter of Vienna. Much loved son of Doreen Rutter, Woodstock. Much loved father and father-in-law of: Jessy Bechard (Matt Squires), Vienna; Travis Rutter (Ashlyn), Springfield; Reba (Mike Robinson), Port Burwell; Lisa (Steve Tollener), Norwich; Jamie Rutter (Heather), Sweaburg; and Crystal (Justin Dennis), Norwich. Proud and loving "Papa" of nine grandchildren: Landen, Connor, Terence, Laci, Samantha, Alyssa, Dustin, Tyson, and Owen; and two great-grandchildren: Isabella and James. Lovingly remembered by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Survived by six sisters and brothers: Eva (Bruce Cromwell), Tillsonburg; Ruby Gabris (Mike Bosher), Woodstock; Ruth Millen (Tim Heffren), Woodstock; Norman Rutter (Sue), Prescott; Howard Rutter, Mt. Elgin; and Kathy (Dave Chambers), Sudbury. Also survived by sisters-in-law: Judy Leggett (James Hutchings), Fingal; and Jo-Ann (Bob Sherman), Tillsonburg; and brother-in-law Ron Berwick, Vienna. Predeceased by an infant brother, Walter Rutter. Also predeceased by many loving family members.
