Our deepest sympathies to Charlotte and family. God bless you all.

Rick was always such a warm, cheerful and positive person. Never a cynic, he always had a ready smile for others whether sweating it out in basketball practice or sitting in class. To his family and loved ones, please know that you are in my thoughts during this difficult and sad time.

I was so sad to hear the news of Rick's passing. We are lifting all of you up in prayer during this time of loss. God bless you all!

Living on Silver Rd., I would often see Rick as he would travel from farm to farm be it in his pickup, Field Boss, or his Harley. Many times, he would stop to see what was going on in the neighborhood. Rick was never at a loss for words and conversations usually ended in laughter as he had a unique sense of humor. He will be missed. Sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear of Rick's passing. I had lost touch with him over the years but I know my brother Kurt had many good times with him. Love and comfort to all.

I’m so sorry to hear about Rick he’ll be missed by all who knew him
