It is with great sadness that the family of Rick Barkhouse, age 45, announce his passing at home on Saturday, January 1, 2022, following a courageous battle against cancer. Born in Halifax on February 17, 1976, he was the son of Richard and Sharon (Munroe) Barkhouse. Rick spent his childhood in Windsor, NS before attending Acadia University. After completing a degree in Computer Science, he moved to Ottawa to marry the love of his life. Of Rick's many accomplishments, his proudest was the birth of Charlie. Rick will forever be remembered as a keyboardist, a software engineer, a gamer, a Lego and Star Wars aficionado, but mostly as a gentle spirit with his love and dedication to his family. He is survived by wife Angie (MacIvor); child, Charlie; parents, Richard and Sharon; sister, Heather (Dave); nephews, Thomas and Jacob; aunt, Pam; extended family and many friends. Music was such a big part of Rick’s life - he will be missed by his musician family in both Nova Scotia and Ottawa. He was predeceased by maternal grandparents, Cecil and Jessie Munroe; paternal grandmother, Mildred Hall-Barkhouse; paternal grandfather, Maurice Barkhouse; uncle Maurice; and father-in-law, Glen MacIvor. The family would like to thank the nurses with Home and Community Care Support Champlain for the kindness, caring and compassion shown to Rick and his family during this time.

A service honoring and celebrating Rick’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville. For those not able to attend in person, the service will be made available by webcast. Burial will take place in the Elm Grove Cemetery, Steam Mill, Kings County.
