Memorable Manitobans: Adam MacKay Rickner (1963-2014)

Entertainer, graphic artist.

Born at Thunder Bay, Ontario on 23 February 1963, he grew up in Winnipeg. He began a life-long career in the arts at the MTN television station, performing as the “Beave” puppet in Bundy’s Late Night Revue from 1987 to 1992. For ten years, he co-anchored the MTN Kids Club with Beave and another puppet. He moved from MTN to the CBC where he was a graphic artist and designer for It’s a Living, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, several documentaries, and contributed to series such as The Fifth Estate, Marketplace, and Disclosure. He died at the St. Boniface Hospital on 30 March 2014.
