Richard "Rick" Paul McLaughlin


Richard "Rick" Paul McLaughlin Richard "Rick" Paul McLaughlin

It is with unbelievable heartbreak that the family of Richard Paul McLaughlin must announce he passed away of natural causes on May 28, 2024. Rick was born in Blacks Harbour on October 31st, 1960, to Emery McLaughlin and Annette (Guitar).

He is survived by his daughters Katelyn Harris (Justin) and Rachael McLaughlin (Sean), and their mother Kathy McLaughlin. Also, his mother Annette Caulder, brothers James McLaughlin, David McLaughlin, and sister Diane Mckinnon. Richard is being welcomed in heaven by his father Emery and brother Michael McLaughlin.

Richard was a class clown and a practical joker with his family growing up. If he wasn’t trying to make you laugh, then he was talking your ear off about his love for the outdoors. The thrill of the wilderness ignited all the things Rick enjoyed in life, whether it be fishing, hunting, camping, or boating. The only thing that lit him up more was his love for his grandchildren Ivy Knox, Harper Harris, and Emery Harris.

Richard was a genuine lovable person that would help anyone in need.
