Richard Ciach

Sadly, on January 6th, 2021 Richard peacefully passed away at his home in Mulmur, Dufferin County, Ont. Beloved faithful husband of 58 years to Blaunshe (nee Zak). Loving son of late Barbara (nee Dombroskie of Pug Lake) and Antoni Ciach of Toronto and predeceased by his sister Lillian Nabzdyk of Markham. Dear brother-in-law of Millie Petrus (Mike). Loved uncle of Katherine O’Donnell (Denis), Wendy Nunes (Nuno) and Michael Nabzdyk. Richard proudly spoke of his parents’ Polish heritage and particularly his mother’s Kashubian community at Barry’s Bay and Wilno, Ont. Richard enjoyed sharing on his voice mails his love for pierogies or ‘ass-kicking’ polka music, and his ‘cruising delight with Holland America’.He will be fondly remembered by his Mulmur Community friends,for his creation of ‘Ciachs’ Retreat’ with his passion for gardening. And so he has gone cruising with another travelling partner to a destination offering pain free peace
A celebration of Richard’s life will be held at a Covid safe time. If so desired, memorial donations can be made to Shriners Burns Hospital, Quebec or Salvation Army, Barrie. Please no flowers, cards only.

Dear Blaunshe, I am deeply sorry for your great loss. Ricky was a fun guy. When he would say something only he could say and the way he said it we all laughed really hard. You were so wise and gentle with him. You two worked as a team. I have fond memories of him, especially my first Christmas in Canada at your place in 1989. He showed me all his special bottles and trophies in the basement. I will miss him. May the Lord bless and comfort you with his grace and peace. Much love, Vaclav, and family from Cape Breton.

Thinking of you Blaunshe, fond memories of Richard giving our son Kris his first job helping Richard with his outdoor chores when Kris was 14 (this year he turns 40!). Richard gave him lots of responsibility and flexible hours. At that time Richard taught Kris how to follow the stock market, information that Kris still uses today.
Richard used to leave very funny messages on our home voice mail providing Doug and I with a few laughs after busy work days. I expect Richard will be telling jokes in heaven.
When my Dad was still alive he used to love walking over to Blaunshe and Richard's to chat.
Take good care Blaunshe.

We moved into the neighbourhood and into the house next door in February, 2010. It did not take long for Blaunsche and Richard to welcome us warmly. They soon became fast friends with mom and dad who had moved in with us. We fondly remember Richard puttering in his beautiful gardens, moving his beloved hostas around, checking the fish pond and riding his tractor. If we were outside he would always wave or stop to chat for a while. Gone but never forgotten. All our love to Blaunsche.

Dear Cousin Blaunshe, please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of your dear husband Richard. He will be missed by all. We shall always have fond memories celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary in Krivoklat Castle in the Czech Republic. Our wedding dates were the same, even though years apart. We were so happy to celebrate your special day with you. Richard looked like the happiest person in the world. Our kids liked him very much, as he always made them so at ease to talk to and laugh at his teasing. May God be with you and give you strength during this difficult time. With all our hearts, love Helen (Zak) Lysek & Vaclav Lysek
