Rick had unconditional love for his children and especially his grandchildren. He was a kind friend with an enormous heart to all who knew him. Rick was a hard-worker, living his life as an exceptional sheet rocker. He was proud of his home, keeping it in meticulous order. Rick was passionate about riding his Harley Davidson and taking his boat out fishing whenever he could.

Rick’s love for his constant companion Shih Tzu dog Keisha, was through and through. Where Rick went, Keisha was by his side. Car rides, walks, visits or just at home Rick wasn’t with our her. True companions and a bonded love until the end, Keisha was with Rick at the time of his passing.

Rick will be remembered for all the heart he shared with his family and friends. He truly loved each of them- and if you knew him, you knew it. He will be missed dearly.
