It is with profound sadness that we learned of the recent passing of George Goodrick, former RVDA of Canada Chairman, and recipient of the 2016 Canadian RV Dealer of the Year Award.

George passed away on February 24, 2021, at just 54 years of age, after a two-year battle with cancer. He is well known throughout the RV industry as the President and owner/operator of Adventure Sports RV in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
