Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Richard James (“Rick”) Donahue. He died of sudden cardiac arrest on July 3, 2021, while serving as organist at St. Clement Church, Cambridge, at the 5:00 p.m. Mass. Rick was deeply loved and his music and sense of humour touched so many people. Survived by his wife Danguole (“Dee”) and their daughter Anne; his brother Dan, sister-in-law Sheila and their daughter Candice; father-in-law Antanas (“Tony") Laugalys and the Laugalys/Feick/Collis clan; nephews Chris and Geoff and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, Larry and Kathleen (“Kay"), brother Bill, and mother-in-law Aldona.
A memorial service will be held at Lounsbury Funeral Home, Cambridge, after Covid restrictions are lessened in Waterloo Region. Our deepest thanks to Emergency Medical Services for their heroic efforts, to Father Mariusz for performing CPR, and to our friends for their outpouring of support. You are amazing and we love you. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice. Most importantly, keep your doctor’s appointments and take every opportunity to tell your dear ones how much they mean to you.

Dee, I am so sorry for you as you experience the sudden loss of Rick.

It was a true delight to get to know Rick during my summer at St. Clement Parish. I found his joy to be uplifting and his playing of the organ to be inspiring.

Please be assured of my prayers for the repose of Rick's soul as well as for consolation for yourself and your family.

In Christ,
Fr. Hayden Starczala

My deepest sympathies to you Dee and to your family.
What an amazing place to go to God, right at Mass. Rick was so loved and I know you will miss him very much.
Know that you are in my prayers.
May the Lord bless and keep you. May His face shine upon you. May He give you His peace.
Love you Dee,
Margaret Sehl

Dear Dee, Anne, extended family and friends
Rick was an awesome and kind hearted man. I was a dispatcher at the Region of Waterloo and reached out when Stores staff was needed. Rick always picked up his phone, even if he was busy. Rick always had a moment to catch up. Retirement is suppose to be full of life to enjoy, this is such a tragedy. Dee and Anne, Rick spoke highly of you both. He loved you dearly. Take care of each other, Rick is always watching over you.

Condolences to Danguloe, Anne and families. I read of Rick's passing in the newspaper. How sad to lose someone still so young and with so much more living to do. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May time heal your hearts and may Rick's candle always shimmer. Hugs to all.

Dee and Anne, my deepest sympathies on the passing of Rick. I cannot imagine your feeling of loss.
I had the pleasure of working with Rick for many years, I always looked forward to my days at the Operations Centre. He had a good sense of humour and was so very kind and good natured. The earth has lost a good person. Rest in peace my friend.
