I am sorry to say that I didn't know Rick very well but I do know that bob thought the world of him. I know he was held in high esteem by his neise and nephew Scott and Jessie. So, he meant alot to me for that reason alone. Jess and Scott are terrific people. Rest in peace Rick and may the angels greet you to take you to our Lord.

Dear Connie, Rick certainly provided our family with wonderful memories to cherish forever. We always looked forward to catching up with you guys for laughs and good spirits both at camp and home. We would like to thank Rick for the opportunity to become friends with him as well as the wonderful love and time he had given to our children (playing tractors and the numerous golf cart rides). You will truly be missed Rick. Love Bill, Col and the Kids.

Connie, there are no words to express how we feel at this time. Our only joy is knowing that we were allowed to be a part of his life, and to enjoy his laughter, goodness and friendship. We will treasure the "memories" forever...May the Lord Bless you, and keep you and your family in his care at this trying time. We love you.

We had a short friendship but we both thought the world of him. He was always willing to help others and a joy to be around. He will be missed. We are both thinking of you Connie at this time.

Connie, We are so sorry. We only Knew you guys from the campground and riding around on the golf carts. If he was doing what he loved to do that is the best we can ever ask. Don and Isabel

I met Rick when he, Connie, and I all worked at the Grand Union and they were dating. He had that "lil red truck" back then. What a great guy. What a life well-lived.
