 Richard (Rick) Abram Enns

1950 - 2018 

Richard Abram Enns was born in the village of Reinland on November 12, 1950. His family attended the Reinland E.M.M.C. where he was baptized upon the confession of his faith on May 31, 1971. He loved farming and anything that took him outdoors, whether it was raising and caring for animals, gardening, hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling or snowmobiling. As a youngster, he was part of the local 4H Club and won an award after showing his heifer in a regional competition. He and his prize heifer were featured in the local newspaper. Rick spent many hours on the mixed farm working alongside his dad (and brothers) on the land and providing care for a variety of farm animals. Rick was an avid hunter and fisherman and loved to be outdoors with nature. He was adventurous, learning new forms of hunting and adding new “toys” to his already extensive arsenal; bows/arrows, a muzzle loader and a variety of guns which we know little about, but he would be able to describe them to the finest detail. He was actively involved in Winkler Game and Fish, as well as, Ducks Unlimited. He would feed the deer on his property and enjoyed snapping photos of them. Another hobby was growing fruit, and he dabbled in grafting multiple varieties of apples onto one tree. He also had an interest in restoring old vehicles and restored a 1954 Chevy truck. This involved about ten years or more of travelling throughout the Midwest to find the parts necessary to build this beautiful blue truck. After graduating from Red River Community College in 1973, his career took him to Winnipeg to work for Black & McDonald. After several years, he started his own air conditioning and refrigeration business in Winkler called Southern Manitoba Mechanical Services. This was a much needed and appreciated service at that time in the Winkler area. It was a physically demanding job, but he enjoyed helping people. As time went by, his health began to deteriorate, but in retirement he could still enjoy coffee out with friends in the community. He had strong convictions, yet a soft heart. His generous spirit could be seen in his willingness to help those around him. 

Rick passed away on Monday February 19, 2018. He was predeceased by his parents, Abe H. Enns in 2002 and Helena Enns (Thiessen) in 1999. He leaves to mourn his passing his sister, Irene, brother, Ron (Elaine), brother, Roy (Carol), sister, Roxie and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Rick loved his family and they loved him. Rick will be greatly missed by family and friends. Until we meet again. 

Cremation has taken place. Memorial service at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday March 11, 2018 at Wiebe Funeral Chapel in Morden. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Rick’s memory to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
