Mrs Pagniano, I was your newspaper boy and I have fond memories of talking with you on collection Saturday mornings. I remember Ricky as a toddler seated in his high chair as you fed him breakfast and his older brother Michael scurrying about the house trailer. You and your husband, Ed, were always friendly and kind to me. I am so sorry for your loss of not only Ricky but your husband and Michael. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sincerest condolences to the entire family. I was proud to have known Rick for over 45 years, and even prouder to count him as a friend.

Rick was a great friend. I have many memories of motorcycle rides, fishing, and great times with him that I will always carry with me. If you needed help he was always there. Even though I moved to Arizona 8 years ago, whenever I came home we would get together to catch up and it was like we were never apart. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. I will miss him very much.

Sorry to hear that you have passed my friend, loved riding with you and Tim. Havent seen you for years but you are a lifetime friend. Last time I was at your house , we had a great time reliving our past. We both loved riding and racing and had alot of fun doing it. You came from good stock as your dad treated me like gold. I remember bending my handlebars at the racetrack and thought I was done for the day, then Big Ed grabbed them and straightened them with his bear hands like the steel was butter. Thanks for the memories, They will forever be some of my best days.

Rick, so sorry to hear about your dad. Your dad and mine had some good times. He always wore a huge smile! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care, Steph

I worked with Rick at Wooster Tool and he was one of a kind. He could brighten your day with that grin of his. Deepest sympathy to his family.

My sincerest condolences on your family's loss. Know that I am praying for comfort and strength.

I miss my soul mate of 23 years we seldom went any where with out each other. We were Rick and Trinette. He always told me I wish you were the one I had my whole life with our children together You are the one I looked for all my life and I finally got you , I am never letting go. I miss him daily morning noon and night we were just getting ready to travel he had asked me to quit my job and lets go. My only regret is I did not marry him when he asked but Rickey wanted to go to college and we decided the cheapest way to send him was on Ricks pay alone so instead of $28000.00 a year it cost $16000.00 a year for Bluffton. We said are vowels together to God in our living room in front of a roaring fire. I hear his laughter I taste his tears I shall see him one day soon I will love him my life time and forever more. God Bless you my Rickey Glenn

Ashton and I are sorry for your loss. Rick was a great friend and father. He will live on in our memories forever. I was deeply saddened by the news. My heartfelt condolences to Ricky and his family.❤
